Ontario, Canada Releases in Demand Occupations List
For the second time this year, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) will be issuing candidates in the Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream with a Notification of Interest (NOI) to apply for the provincial nomination program. The draw will be taking place this week ending April 14, 2017.

As per a recent announcement, the prospective candidates who have already created their Express Entry profile and have been waiting to be issued with Invitation to Apply are encouraged to delete their old profile and create a new profile to make it easier for the OINP to identify the candidates they require from the pool.

The only way for applicants to join the HCP is to be in the pool and wait to receive a notification of interest (NOI).  Candidates must have a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 400 points and hold a degree, and English or French ability at Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 7 or greater. They must also have work experience. Those who receive a NOI will be granted further 600 CRS points meaning they will be getting an edge over the others in the queue and will surely be issued with an invitation to apply in the next Express Entry draw.

The OINP will be targeting a list of in-demand trades but the nominations will not be limited to this list.

Of interest to the OINP are skilled tradespeople and workers including carpenters, types of electricians, plumbers, boilermakers, mechanics and millwrights, welders, sheet metal workers, plumbers, exterior painters and decorators, roofers, plasterers and tile-setters. Plasterers must be drywall installers and finishers and lathers. Electricians are industrial and domestic but not power system. Applicants must be both experienced and qualified in their trade and will be identified by their National Occupational Classification (NOC) code which they must show is accurate to their skills. NOC codes are a standardized system which Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) uses across all Canadian immigration routes to evaluate work experience.

The OINP is directly aligned with the federal Express Entry system. The Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream was created to help Ontario meet economic and labour market requirements, such as skill shortages.

The central Canadian province of Ontario is known as the most multi-cultural province in Canada built by generations of immigrants.
