Today, OINP Draw (Ontario PNP) invited 755 Express Entry Profiles under skilled trades stream. Candidates having Express Entry CRS score of 310 and above were sent the Notification of Interests (NOIs). This draw removed upper cap of CRS score for the first time; although, lower range of CRS cut off increased by 15 points as compared to last skilled trades draw on May 26.
Profiles created between July 14, 2021 – July 14, 2022 were considered for this draw. Furthermore, skilled trades stream has invited 4,645 Express Entry Profiles in total this year. You can find the list of invited NOCs (National Occupation Classification) in the later part of this article.
Focus has shifted to PNP (Provincial Nominee Programs), rather than relying solely on Express Entry. This is because of high CRS cut off in recently resumed Express Entry All Program Draw.
