The Ontario PNP started Tech Draws in the 2019 summer. These draws were designed to support the Ontario province to meet the increasing labor needs in the tech sector.

Ontario province is home to plenty of Canada’s significant-tech hubs, prominently those in the cities of Waterloo, Ottawa, and Toronto, and these Tech Draws are intended to overcome growing labor requirements in the sector.

Federal Express Entry Pool

To be considered for an Ontario Tech Draw, applicants need to have a suitable profile that registered beneath Canadian Experience Class or Federal Skilled Worker Program, both of which are controlled by the Express Entry system.

How Tech Draws Work

Ontario Tech Draws are managed through the Ontario’s Human Capital Priorities Stream, which enables the Ontario PNP to search the pool of federal Express Entry for applicants who satisfy the stream’s eligibility criteria. An employment offer is not needed in order to be qualified for the Stream of Human Capital Priorities.

The motto of these draws is to explore especially for Express Entry aspirants who satisfy the Human Capital Priorities qualification requirements and have a minimum of one year of continuous and paid full-time skilled work experience or equal part-time skilled work experience.
