On August 1, 2019, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) issued targeted Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to candidates who qualify for Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities (HCP) Stream. The OINP targeted candidates with work experience in the following NOC codes:
- 2173 Software engineers and designers
- 2174 Computer programmer and interactive media developers
- 2147 Computer engineers
- 2175 Web designers and developers
- 2172 Database analysts and data administrators
- 0213 Computer and information systems managers
To be eligible for nomination, applicants must demonstrate work experience in one of the 6 eligible NOC codes. Your application may be refused if you do not demonstrate work experience in one of the eligible NOC codes.
Through this dedicated approach, we’re helping to make it easier for businesses in the technology sector to recruit top talent from around the world.
To ensure that this initiative meets the needs of Ontario employers, we engaged with stakeholders across the province through a survey and face-to-face consultations. This helped us choose priority occupations for the targeted technology occupations draws.
Over the past year 1,773 invitation were issued, the lowest draw point being 435 points.
