OINP Invites Tech Workers in Largest Human Capital Priorities Draw of 2021

Published on: October 27th, 2021

Today, on October 27, 2021, Ontario has held its first targeted tech draw since April 2021. In today’s round of invitations, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) issued a whopping 1,408 invitations, making it the largest Human Capital Priorities stream draw held this year.

This draw follows Canada’s fourth consecutive PNP-specific Express Entry draw. While Canada pauses FSW draws, provinces continue to use nominee programs to recruit skilled workers from abroad.

Candidates invited in Ontario’s most recent draw had identified their primary National Occupational Classification (NOC) code as one of Ontario’s six targeted tech professions:

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

Candidates were also required to have at least one year of continuous paid full-time work experience. CRS scores for this draw fell between 455 and 467.
