The province of Ontario receives more newcomers than any other, and boasts a thriving tech sector that draws international talent to Canada. In April 2019, the province announced an upcoming stream of the OINP for workers in tech industries. As of yesterday, the province has shifted its plan to conduct tech-specific draws under the Human Capital Priorities Stream aligned with the Federal Express Entry system for international skilled workers.

6 Tech Occupations In-Demand:

Ontario will be issuing Notifications of Interest (NOI) to eligible applicants with work experience matching one of the following NOC codes:

NOC CodeTitle
NOC 2173Software engineers and designers
NOC 2174Computer programmers and interactive media developers
NOC 2147Computer engineers
NOC 2175Web designers and developers
NOC 2172Database analysts and data administrators
NOC 0213Computer and information systems managers

Those who receive an NOI will be invited to submit an online application to the province . If successful, applicants will earn a nomination from Ontario and 600 additional points added to their Comprehensive Ranking System score in Express Entry. With recent Express Entry draws targeting profiles with a CRS cut-off around 450, these additional points will put you in an excellent position to receive an invitation to apply for permanent resident status in Canada!.
