Ontario targets more construction workers through OINP invitations

TORONTO — Ontario’s Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development has issued a new batch of invitations under the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) targeting carpenters and other skilled trades.

During the period for the week prior to Aug. 18, the ministry invited 5,450 candidates with health care and tech experience or job offers in Ontario to apply to the OINP through four streams: Employer Job Offer, International Student stream; Employer Job Offer, Foreign Worker stream; Employer Job Offer, In Demand Skills stream; and Human Capital Priorities stream.

In the In Demand Skills stream, 256 skilled candidates with job offers in in-demand skills were invited to apply to permanently live and work in Ontario.

Besides carpenters, among the workers being offered invitations in various streams are drafting technologists and technicians, and welders and related machine operators.

“In the middle of a historic labour shortage, newcomers are crucial to growing our economy and building a stronger province for all of us,” stated Minister of Labour Monte McNaughton in a statement. “Ontario is doing more than any other province to help immigrants build better lives for themselves and their loved ones, and we’re proud to extend that opportunity to the 5,450 more people today.”
