A new Ontario tech draw held on October 15, welcoming Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program(OINP) issued targeted Notification of Interest to applicants who may be eligible for the Express Entry Human Capital Priorities stream.

Ontario issued a total of 772 NOIs from this draw. In order to be invited the candidate needed a CRS score between 462 and 470 and experience in one of the following occupations:

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

If the candidates are given the nomination from Ontario they will automatically get an additional 600 CRS point towards their overall CRS score. It will ensure that they will receive an ITA for permanent residency.
