Did You Know the Latest Updates in The OINP July 2019?

Express Entry stream – Notifications of Interest by Targeted Occupations 

On May 31, 2019, The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) issued targeted Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to candidates who qualify for Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities (HCP) Stream. The OINP targeted candidates with work experience in the following NOC codes:

  • 0114   Other administrative services managers
  • 0601   Corporate sales managers
  • 1122   Professional occupations in business management consulting
  • 0124   Advertising, marketing and public relations managers
  • 0621   Retail and wholesale trade managers
  • 1111   Financial auditors and accountants
  • 3012   Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses
  • 0111   Financial managers
  • 1114   Other financial officers
  • 0651   Managers in customer and personal services, n.e.c.

On July 12th and August 1st, Another issuance of NOIs happened. This time the OINP targeted candidates with work experience in Information Technology (IT), such as NOC codes:

  • 2173   Software engineers and designers
  • 2174   Computer programmers and interactive media developers
  • 2147   Computer engineers
  • 2175   Web designers and developers
  • 2172   Database analysts and data administrators
  • 0213   Computer and information systems managers

The reason behind these opportunities is the significant contribution immigrants make to the Canadian economy. According to 2018 Annual Report to Parliament on Immigration, since 1990, over six million immigrants have come to Canada; today, one in five Canadians was born outside the country. Immigrants help fill the country’s labour gap.

The 2015 Ontario Immigration Act was amended on e- Laws on July 8, 2019.  The amendments were made to simplify program requirements, add greater clarity and consistency to stream criteria, and introduce changes to the In-Demand Skills Stream and the Entrepreneur Stream. 

In-Demand Skills Stream

The work experience requirement has been reduced for candidates under the In-Demand Skills Stream. The stream has added three new National Occupational Classification (NOC) codes related to personal support workers and transport truck drivers as eligible occupations to support changing labour market needs.

Entrepreneur Stream requirements drop

In the past, entrepreneurs coming to Canada needed an initial investment of $1 million in the GTA and $500,000 outside the GTA.  Currently, the numbers have lowered to $600,000 in the GTA and $200,000 outside the GTA. These changes hope to attract more job creators and bring more growth to the province. However, candidates who registered Expressions of Interest under the Entrepreneur Stream before July 8th and did not receive an invitation are no longer eligible to receive an invitation. Those who received an Invitation to Apply before July 8th s are still eligible to apply under the pre-July 8, 2019 Entrepreneur Stream criteria. The invitations to apply are valid for 90 days from the issue date.

2020: Ontario Regional Immigration Pilot 

To attract top skilled workers from all over the world, Ontario announced the Ontario Regional Immigration Pilot. The pilot is set to begin in 2020. Some of its goals include bringing skilled workers into rural and smaller communities to fill labour gaps and specifically target the needs of Ontario communities. Furthermore, this pilot seeks to explore how to regionalize the OINP more efficiently and support Ontario employers in smaller communities better.
