Furthermore, it is essential to meet the following criteria:

  • Work Experience: Accumulate a minimum of 12 months of full-time (or equivalent part-time) work experience in Ontario within two years from the date of receiving the NOI from OINP. This experience should be in a skilled trade occupation listed in Minor Group 6320 or Major Group 72, 73, 82, 83, or 93 of the NOC system.
  • Trade Certification (if required): Hold a trade license or certification from the Ontario College of Trades if you work or have worked in an occupation in Ontario that mandates the possession of a license or certification.
  • Current Residence in Ontario: At the time of application, you need to be residing in Ontario under a valid work permit.

  • Intent: Display a genuine intention to settle in Ontario.
  • Settlement Funds: Show evidence of possessing a minimum level of savings or income.

The OINP’s Express Entry Skilled Trades Stream presents foreign nationals with an attractive opportunity to apply for permanent residency, enabling them to live and work in the thriving province of Ontario. If nominated, the subsequent step would entail submitting an application to the federal government through the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Ultimately, the IRCC is responsible for the final decision concerning permanent residency.

With the Ontario draw and Ontario Express Entry Draw providing a platform for skilled trades workers to realize their dreams of building a successful career and life in Ontario, it is an opportune time to seize this chance and embark on a remarkable journey towards creating your desired future in this vibrant Canadian province.
