About the In-demand Skills Stream
This immigration stream lays more focus on the provincial demand for skilled workers than the skill level in the occupation. In this stream, both high and low-skilled workers find their opportunity to work in Canada in the Canadian province.
Foreign workers under this stream will require an eligible job offer in Ontario. This job offer must be received within 3 years into the past. This stream does not consider seasonal work experience as eligible. If the candidate had worked for the required number of hours in part-time employment, it may be considered to grant eligibility.
The total number of hours worked must be 1,200 hours of paid employment. This will be considered valid if over a course of 18 months. If candidates had more than one job, they must have worked at least 30 hours a week for 9 months to be eligible under this stream.
Other eligibility requirements include a minimum language score of 4 in all areas of language skills, a high-school education, and enough funds to settle in Canada.
