Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invites 190 applicants from its Express Entry Skilled Trades stream.


On April, 29, 190 applicants from OINP’S Express Entry Skilled Worker (EESW) stream received a Notification of Interest (NOI’s) for a nomination to apply for permanent residence. Applicants were selected from Ontario’s 14 skilled trades’ occupations such as:


Structural metal and plate work fabricators and fitters – NOC 7235 Roofers – NOC 7291
Ironworkers – NOC 7236 Contractors and supervisors, heavy equipment operator crews – NOC 7302

Who qualified in OINP’s Express Entry Skilled Trades stream?

To qualify in this draw, you must have a valid profile in the Express Entry (EE) system. Besides, if you receive a nomination against your EE profile then you will receive extra 600 CRS points. Also, extra CRS score guarantees that you will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA). After getting an ITA in an EE draw, you can apply for a Canada PR.

So far OINP has issued 1,440 ITA to applicants from the Human Capital Priorities stream. And 242 ITA to French-speaking Skilled Worker stream applicants. The April 29, EEST draw was the 4th OINP draw of the year.

Also, Ontario is yet to receive its 2020 OINP allocation from the Canada government. In 2019 the province received 6,650 spots with extra 700 spots in November and was the only province to invite the highest number of applicants i.e. 7,391.
