Ontario is a well-known place for immigrants who choose Canada as their immigration destination. One of the most economically developed provinces of Canada, it needs qualified and skilled workers from the world over.
On September 22, 2021, Ontario PNP issued invitations to 72 immigration candidates in 2 PNP draws. They were invited to place applications for a provincial nomination. This was the third-ever draw conducted under OINP’s new intake system for Canada immigration candidates under the in-demand skills stream.
OINP’s new EOI system replaced the old system that worked on a first-come-first-served model. Under the new system, immigration candidates can register for an opportunity to apply for Ontario’s provincial nomination at any time.

About the In-demand Skills Stream
The In-demand Skills Stream focuses more on the demand for skilled workers in a province rather than the level of skill sought for in the occupation. Both high and low-skilled workers find their chance to work in Canada under this stream.
Foreign workers who come under this stream need a job offer in Ontario that’s deemed eligible. The job offer must be received within the last 3 years. This stream considers no seasonal work experience for eligibility. In case the candidate had worked for the prescribed number of hours in a part-time job, there’s the possibility that it’s considered as grounds to grant eligibility.
The candidate must have worked 1,200 hours of paid employment over a course of 18 months. If they had more than one job, they must have worked a minimum of 30 weekly hours for a period of 9 months. Only then they will be eligible to apply under this stream.
Among other requirements for eligibility are the minimum score of 4 in all language skill areas, a high-school education, and sufficient funds to settle in Canada.
