Ontario’s Tech Stream and Immigration Pilot Help To Overcome Labour Demand

Ontario’s Tech Stream and Immigration Pilot
The creation of a committed Ontario PNP stream for tech workers answers to immediate labor requirements that have to be fulfilled, the Ontario government states.  

Notable Changes in OINP

The government’s latest budget declared 04 significant updates to the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program that covers the latest tech worker stream, a new pilot created to get highly skilled immigrants to the Canadian smaller communities and changes to the eligibility criteria for its Employer and Entrepreneur Job Offer: Stream of In-Demand Skills.

The O.I.N.P enables Ontario to choose a fixed number of economic immigration applicants for Canadian PR each year. There are vital sectors in the Canadian economy that have immediate labor needs, like home care, trucking, and tech. These are opportunities that have to be filled.

Ontario says modifications will make it simpler for skilled workers — from technology workers to truckers — to migrate to Ontario, contribute to the economy, and create better lives.

The budget provided no information about the committed immigration stream for tech workers. However, Ontario’s Economic Development Minister, Letersky told that they “will be released soon” along with further information on the additional changes to the O.I.N.P.

The Council of Canadian Innovators (C.C.I) addressed the tech worker stream creation, stating the demand for skilled international tech talent will develop more severe in the future.

Highly-skilled workers are jet-fuel for Ontario’s quickly growing scale-ups and with Canada suffering a deficit of nearly 220,000 skilled workers by 2021, improving access to talent by strategic economic immigration is an appreciated step forward.

The O.I.N.P has focused international tech workers in the past by its Human Capital Priorities Stream, which enables the O.I.N.P to search the Express Entry pool for applicants who satisfy the stream’s provincial and federal qualification criteria.

Technology associated work experience, however, is not a focus condition of the Human Capital Priorities Stream.

Immigration Pilot for Smaller Communities

Ontario’s budget also requests for the latest pilot initiative “to investigate innovative ways to bring highly skilled newcomers to the smaller communities of Ontario.”

The Northern Policy Insitute (N.P.I) has been one of the institutions making a case for such a pilot to direct mounting labor deficits in rural and northern regions of Ontario.

The initiative appears on the bases of the Candian government’s new Northern and Rural Immigration Pilot, which will run with smaller and further remote communities in Ontario province and Western Provinces and Territories of Canada to bring and hold international workers.

Actual labor requirements in multiple smaller communities in Northern Ontario point to be intermediate-skilled professions classified as skill level C or D below the National Occupational Classification (N.O.C).

Ontario focused on two of them are personal support workers and truck drivers, said by Cirtwill, Institute’s President and CEO. Those are significant difficulties, especially in rural areas.
