Ontario Tech Draw

Ontario Tech Draw is conducted under the Human Capital Priorities stream of the OINP. It allows the province to select eligible candidates from the federal Express Entry pool and nominate them for permanent residence in Canada. It is not necessary for the candidates to have a job offer from an Ontario employer to be eligible under the Human Capital Priorities stream. But to be invited in an Ontario Tech draw, the candidates need to have at least one year of continuous, paid, full-time work experience or equivalent paid part-time work experience in any one of the targeted occupations.

The latest Ontario Tech Draw has given more international tech workers an opportunity to obtain permanent residence in Canada. The technology sector of Canada is growing despite the Coronavirus pandemic and the tech companies in the country continue to hire workers.

If you are a tech worker wishing to migrate to Canada, make the most of this opportunity by starting the preparations for migration right away. Please contact the expert Canada migration consultants of CanApprove to know whether your occupation is in demand in Canada.
