They were also required to have work experience in any of the following jobs:
- Computer engineers (NOC 2147)
- Computer and information systems managers (NOC 0213)
- Software engineers and designers (NOC 2173)
- Database analysts and data administrators (NOC 2172)
- Web designers and developers (NOC 2175)
- Computer programmer and interactive media developers (NOC 2174)
No job offer was needed in hand for the candidates to qualify for an invitation. Nevertheless, they had to have a year of work experience in any of the above-said tech occupations. They also needed to have a profile in the Express Entry system.
An NOI received from Ontario will have to be reciprocated with an application for provincial nomination within 45 calendar days. Upon getting nominated, 600 extra points will be added to the candidate’s CRS score. This makes sure that the candidate will get an ITA for PR in a future Express Entry draw.
