Ontario Distributes 484 Invitations To Express Entry Candidates

Ontario Express Entry

Canadian provinces have refused to start the new year on a backfoot. They have already started hosting regular draws in order to invite eligible and skilled workers who will be able to fill the labor gaps in the province. 

Ontario held its first draw of 2021 on January 13 in order to issue invitations to candidates belonging to the Skilled Trades and French-Speaking Skilled Worker streams. The draw focused exclusively on these two enhanced PNPs under the Express Entry system. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program distributed 484 Notifications of Interest in total. 

Details of the streams

The French-Speaking Skilled Worker stream targets candidates who can speak both English and French. For candidates to qualify under this stream, they must be eligible for either the Federal Skilled Worker Program or the Canadian Experience Class.

In order to prove their language abilities, they should have a Canadian Language Benchmark of minimum 7 in French and minimum 6 in English. On the January 13 draw, 146 candidates from this stream with CRS scores ranging from 456 to 460 managed to secure invitations. 


On the other hand, the Skilled Trades stream gives a chance to the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program to select particular candidates from the Express Entry pool. The province mostly targets people who are already living in Ontario.

This draw saw 338 candidates from the stream receiving invitations. In order to be eligible, candidates should have a one year of full-time work experience or equivalent part-time experience in any of the professions listed under Major Group 72/73/82 or Minor Group 633.

All the candidates who received invitations during this draw had created their profiles in the period from January 13, 2020 to January 13 this year.
