Ontario Occupation in-Demand

Ontario, the most populous province in Canada, is home to over 12 million people. It has plenty of natural resources and industries. This province requires a large number of human resources to maximize the use of these resources, produce ready-to-use items for customers from them and raw materials as well as fill vacancies in the ICT, healthcare, and service industries.  As a result, employers in this Canadian province have always sought to employ young skilled workers and immigrants under its different streams, particularly (Human Capital Priorities Stream) and categories to make positive contributions to the economy. This stream offers immigrants with solid job prospects and a bright future in Canada.

Immigrants who are willing to work in Ontario can avail themselves of different options under Human Capital Priorities Stream (HCPS). They can go for permanent residency or work permit under Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) or Express Entry Stream respectively. They may also choose to apply directly under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) which is a fast-track program for skilled workers who have spent at least one year out of three years in Canada before their arrival date.

In Ontario, employers directly recruit candidates through a selection process that is outlined in the Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP). The selected candidates then receive a nomination certificate from the province that qualifies them to apply for Canadian Permanent Residency.

The process of selecting candidates is based on their educational background, work experience, and language skills. Candidates with the required qualifications are shortlisted and interviewed before being approved as permanent residents of Canada.
