The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program draw held on July 14 invited 755 candidates belonging to the Ontario Express Entry Skilled Trades Stream. The invited candidates had a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 310. Ontario invited candidates who had created their Express Entry profile between July 14, 2021 and July 14, 2022.
Ontario Express Entry stream
The Skilled Trades Stream aligned to the Express Entry is a pathway to permanent residency for Federal Skilled Worker Program and Canadian Experience Class candidates. The eligible candidates are invited by the OINP to apply for a provincial nomination.
To be eligible to receive an invitation under this stream, a candidate must have an active Express Entry profile. They must also have minimum one year of full-time work experience or equivalent part-time work. This work experience must be in a skilled trade listed in Minor Group 633 or Major Group 72, 72 or 82 under the National Occupation Classification of Canada.
Express Entry migration through PNP
Almost all Provincial Nominee Programs have at least one stream or category aligned to the federal Express Entry. The candidates who receive a provincial nomination will have 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) score points added to their total CRS score. This would guarantee them an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada in one of Express Entry draws that are conducted regularly. Canada PNP allows even those Express Entry candidates with low CRS score to receive an Express Entry application.
