Skilled Trades

1340 Skilled Trades Candidates were invited by Ontario on September 29, 2022, under the Skilled Trades Stream of the Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP). The minimum CRS score of the invited candidates was 266. All invitees have their profiles created in the Express Entry system between September 29, 2021, to September 29, 2022. Candidates, who received a notification of interest on September 7, 2022, do not need to contact the program and can apply to the stream. This year, Ontario invited 7,506 candidates in eight draws under the Skilled Trades Stream. The OINP already invited 19,383 candidates under all streams of OINP in 2022. 


What is the Skilled Trades Stream of OINP?

With the Skilled Trades (ST) stream, a candidate must have a valid Express Entry profile to be eligible. Through this stream, new immigrants to Ontario are selected by the province. The OINP selects applicants from the pool by looking at their profiles and sending them Notifications of Interest if they seem like a better match for that applicant’s needs. 

Not every candidate will be notified of their ST status. Ontario Employment and Labour Relation Program select candidates periodically, and there are Skilled Trade requirements in addition to the minimum eligibility requirements.
