Ontario PNP issued targeted notification of Interest to candidates who may qualify for the express entry human capital Priorities (HCP) stream. These candidates must have profiles in the federal express entry system.

668 leading applicants received notification of interest (NOI) from the Tech Draw. A comprehensive ranking system (CRS) score between 460 and 468 was required to invite express entry candidates. The candidates did not need to have a job offer, but they did need at least one year’s work experience in one of the following services or tech occupation:

  • NOC 0213 Computer and information systems managers
  • NOC 2147 Computer engineers
  • NOC 2172 Database analysts and data administrators
