This draw targeted all other foreign worker stream candidates.
This In-Demand Skills draw targeted candidates in health, manufacturing and agricultural occupations.
Individuals interested in applying must have a valid job offer with an Ontario employer in addition to meeting other stream-specific criteria.
Eligible candidates must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile through OINP’s e-Filing Portal. Profiles are then ranked using Ontario’s points-based system, which is unique to each stream.
Those who meet the requirements of an Ontario PNP draw will be invited to apply for nomination. Successful nominees may submit a federal application for Canadian permanent residence.
Ontario uses a ranking system to assign a score to Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles and determine who receives an invitation in EOI draws. The points system used will depend on the stream that a candidate qualifies under. For example, the International Student ranking system places more emphasis on education, while the Foreign Worker ranking system places more emphasis on work.
Despite receiving more newcomers than any other Canadian province, Ontario’s Labour Minister has asked the federal government to double their nominee allocation.
Ontario is facing a significant labour shortage. The solution, says Labour Minister McNaughton, is increased immigration. Minister McNaughton wants to double the number of immigrants allowed under the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program from 9,000 to 18,000 per year to help fill job vacancies.
Ontario’s nominee quota has not yet been announced for 2022, but the province has been issuing invitations at a rapid rate. So far this year, OINP has invited 4795 candidates to apply for nomination.
