The Canadian province of Ontario released the details of its Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws held in May 2022. The Ontario nomination draws invited a total of 592 candidates under two separate skilled-trades streams held on a different date.
Occupations can be identified as skilled trades based on National Occupational Classification (NOC). The following are considered skilled trades in Ontario
- All occupations within NOC minor group 633 (the first three digits of the NOC Code)
- All occupations within NOC major groups 72, 73, or 82 (the first two digits of the NOC Code)
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) had paused releasing information on the Ontario nomination draws results during the provincial government election, which ended on June 2.
About the In-Demand Skills Stream
Ontario issued 57 invitations to apply to potential candidates under the Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills stream. All the invited candidates had already registered themselves in the Expression of Interest (EOI) system pool.
For this nomination draw, the qualifying profiles had a score of 27 and above.
The In-Demand Skills Stream focuses more on Foreign workers with eligible job offers in Ontario. They are required to have nine months of cumulative work experience in the province within the past three years.
Generally, candidates need a high school education, a language score of at least 4 in all proficiencies, and sufficient settlement funds, among other requirements.
About Ontario’s Express Entry Skilled Trades Stream
Again on May 26, the Ontario nomination draws invited 535 candidates from the federal Express Entry pool.
The notifications of interest to potential candidates were issued under Ontario’s Express Entry Skilled Trades stream. All the invited candidates had a qualifying Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score between 295 and 461.
Candidates do not need a job offer to apply under the Skilled Trades Stream, but they must meet all the mandatory federal and provincial program requirements.
How to Get Canada PR through PNP?
Canada PR through PNP is a two-step process where eligible candidates receive an invitation to apply for permanent residency after successful provincial nomination. The inclusion of an additional 600 CRS points to provincial nominee holders in the Express Entry pool effectively guarantees permanent residency.
Getting an invitation to apply for permanent residency remains under the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal government. A provincial nomination can only fast-track the total time taken to receive an invitation to apply.
Through provincial nominations for international students, interested candidates can qualify for Canadian permanent residency in a quick time. Applying through provincial nominee programs may give you the best deal.
Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP) issues provincial nominations to eligible skilled workers under its famous Human Capital Priorities stream. The province also invites candidates already registered in the federal pool under its Tech draw.
Those with provincial nominations like the one from Express Entry Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream or Ontario Tech Draw or any other stream will get preferential treatment to obtain permanent residence.
