The Provincial Nominee Program, itself, is extremely beneficial for Express Entry candidates as it can provide you with the most points out of all Express Entry factors. Successful candidates can obtain up to 600 additional points from this program and gain an invitation to apply at the next draw for the Express Entry pool.

Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program Stream for Tradespersons Video

The new stream for Tradespersons came into effect on May 31, 2017. In order to qualify under this new Stream for Tradespersons, candidates must be eligible under Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Of course any candidate who is eligible under the Canadian Experience Class must qualify and meet the minimum requirements necessary. Most importantly, candidates must also verify that they would like to reside in Ontario in their Express Entry profile and in addition must also receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) from the province of Ontario through their online account before they can submit their application. In order to receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) from the Ontario Immigrant Nomination Program (OINP), candidates must fulfill the aforementioned criteria and must qualify under a specific National Occupational Classification (NOC) group. The groups that qualify for Tradespersons are: Major group 72, Major group 73, Major group 82, and lastly, Minor group 633. It is very important and essential for you to research and analyze whether the NOC describes your current job title, duties, responsibilities and more. Not only do you have to match the NOC to your current job circumstance, but you must also ensure that you meet all of the aforementioned requirements stated in the video in order to qualify under the Ontario Immigrant Nomination Program.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
