The Second ACT Invitation Round of the Month invited 600+ Candidates
Ontario is in the east-central part of Canada and is one of the most prosperous provinces as well as the financial hub of the county. As a result, the province is the first choice to land for most of the immigrants, who wish to live, work or Study in Canada. As far as, Canada permanent residency has concerned, the province also plays an important role in inviting several immigrants. It was a time when the province was inviting the highest number of immigrants and international students. However, the Wuhan virus pandemic and the increasing population in the region affected the draw patterns and raised the CRS score criteria.
On the other end, there is a significant update introduced by Canada Immigration on November 16, 2022. The entire NOC system has been upgraded on the day and a new TEER (Training, Education, Experience and Responsibility) was launched that replaced the four digits occupation codes with five digits.
Ontario declared the second draw of the month under the Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream. The latest Tech draw invited 936 IT professionals on December 19, 2022. Those aspirants received a nomination who have the CRS between 484 to 490 points.

As the new system is upgraded, it rejuvenates the provincial nominee program of Canada. After the system changes some of the provinces like British Columbia, Manitoba Saskatchewan and Ontario declared drastic draws. As far as Ontario has concerned, the Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP) stopped from September 2022, but as the new TEER system has been implemented in the OINP draw system, the province declared two consecutive draws within just six days. Moreover, the most noticeable part of both the draws is the range of CRS scores and the selection of occupation codes.
