Austin Campbell



Express Entry Tech Draw 2021

The province of Ontario organized its first Tech draw of the year on February 16. A total of 1,186 candidates managed to secure invitations.

The Tech Draw program is specifically geared towards tech workers who will be able to contribute to the successful tech sector in Ontario. All the invited candidates in this draw had work experience in one of six listed professions. They will now have the chance to apply for a provincial nomination.


In order to receive a nomination, the candidates will have to provide proof that they have the necessary work experience in one of the following targeted professions:

  • Computer and information systems managers (NOC 0213);
  • Computer engineers (NOC 2147);
  • Web designers and developers (NOC 2175).
  • Software engineers and designers (NOC 2173);
  • Data administrators and database analysts (NOC 2172);
  • Computer programmer and interactive media developers (NOC 2174);

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program or OINP invited Express Entry candidates whose CRS scores ranged between 453 and 467. The selected candidates can receive a nomination via the Human Capital Priorities Stream. They can submit their PNP applications within the next 45 days.

The people who managed to get nominated by Ontario will have an advantage because they will receive 600 extra CRS points, rendering them eligible for a permanent residence ITA in a future Express Entry draw.


Since the OINP Tech Draw chooses candidates from the Express Entry pool, interested applicants should first make a profile under the Express Entry system.
