Ontario invited 1,031 Express Entry candidates in a recent Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw held on July 27.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) targeted candidates with work experience in one of eighteen (18) occupations.

The OINP invited candidates who may be eligible for the Express Entry Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream. The HCP stream gives skilled foreign workers the opportunity to make Ontario their new home.

Invited candidates need at least one (1) year of work experience in one of the targeted occupations to receive a provincial nomination. See below for a list of the eighteen (18) occupations that were targeted in this draw with their National Occupational Classification (NOC) code.
