Ontario has been one of the provinces which has been showing a great deal of interest in taking immigrants in order to meet the province’s demands this year. Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program is an ideal pathway where an international student or a foreign worker could apply for a provincial nomination and immigrate to Canada. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program looks for potential immigrants under the Express Entry System and sends them a provincial nomination certificate. The Canadian Express Entry System is the one responsible for handling Canada’s three most economic immigration programs – the Federal Skilled Worker, the Federal Skilled Trades Program and the Canadian Experience Class.

The draw held on the 21st of March invited 361 Express Entry candidates to the province. OINP searches for candidates under the Federal Skilled Worker Class and candidates who are currently living in Ontario with a minimum of one-year full-time work experience or the same in part-time work and should fall under skilled trades list in Minor Group 633 or Major Group 72, 73 or 82 under Canada’s NOC list.
