Now that 2021 is coming to an end, Canadian provinces are organizing their last few draws of the year. Canada’s aim this year was to boost immigration after the pandemic spoiled 2020 immigration plans. The country has so far been successful in its efforts, and the provinces have contributed handsomely to the success. 

The province of Ontario held its latest draw via the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) on October 27. The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is a popular immigration solution for skilled workers who can fill the labor gaps in particular provinces and territories of Canada. They are chosen by the provinces from the Express Entry pool and invited to apply for a provincial nomination.

The latest Ontario PNP issued a whopping 1,406 invitations on October 27 to eligible Express Entry candidates. All the selected candidates were tech professionals with experience in one of the six tech occupations listed by the province. The CRS score requirement ranged between 455 and 467.
