Ontario has invited Express Entry Candidates to apply to be nominated for permanent residence through the province’s new Skilled Trade Stream.
Qualified applicants who provided their Express Entry profile within the period of exactly one year; from 21st March 2018 to 21st March 2019, were invited by the OINP (Ontario Immigrant Nominee Programme) to take part in the draw which was held on the 21st of March, 2019. The OINP has given out a total of 361 invitations to Express Entry candidates to partake in the draw.
Also, the Canadian Express Entry System oversees the group of candidates for three basic economic immigration classes in Canada. These classes include the Federal Skilled Trades Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Class, and Canadian Experience Class.
About the Skilled Trades Stream
The Skilled Trades Stream permits the OINP to review the pool of Express Entry for applicants within the Federal Skilled Workers class and Canadian Experience class who are presently living in Ontario and have at least one year regular or part-time working experience in any of the skilled trade enlisted in Major Group 82, 73 and 72, or Minor Group 633 all under the nation’s NOC (National Occupational Classification).
To be recognized as a candidate under the Skilled Trade Stream, one must first join the Express Entry pool. Interested and eligible candidates do not require a job offer to send in their application for the skilled trade stream, but all the necessary federal and provincial demands as stated by the OINP should be met.
Applicants who are nominated for the Canadian Permanent Residence from the skilled trade stream get an advantageous point of about 600 CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) and are certified to apply for the Canadian PR through the Federal Express Entry System.
A total of 732 letters of invitation have been given to Express Entry candidates in 2019 from the last Skilled Trade Stream held on the 21 March, 2019. These letters were given by the OINP.
