Ontario held its first provincial draw for employer job vacancies almost two weeks after launching a new immigrant admissions system. The invited candidates had work experience in one of the 23 professions.
On May 11, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invited 81 applicants who had profiles in the new Expression of Interest (EOI) pool. These candidates may qualify for the Employer's Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream.
Applicants needed an EOI score of at least 31 and they had to have job openings in one of 15 health professions or eight specialist professions. Here they are in the order of their National Occupational Classification (NOC) code.

The Ontario Foreign Worker Stream in the Employer Job Offer category is open to foreign nationals who have a qualifying job offer from an employer in Ontario. When you are applying for a provincial nomination, it is not necessary to be in the country as long as you meet all the minimum requirements.
To be eligible, you must accumulate the equivalent of two years of work experience in a skilled occupation, have a qualifying job offer in Ontario, and intend to immigrate to the province, among other criteria.
To apply for provincial nomination under Ontario PNP, you have to create your EOI profile through Ontario's online portal.
After registering your profile, it will go to the EOI pool. Based on your credentials, your profile is assigned scores by Ontario. You get points based on the skill level of your job posting and work experience, as well as your salary, education, language skills, the region in which you studied or worked, and other factors.
