How Tech Draws work
The OINP Tech Draw is organized through the province’s Human Capital Priorities Immigration Section, which allows for a search of the Federal Express Entry pool for candidates who meet the eligibility requirements of the OINP stream.
A job offer is not required in order to be eligible for the Human Capital Priorities section.
The purpose of these draws is to search specifically for express entry candidates who meet the eligibility requirements of the Human Capital Priority Stream and have at least one year of continuous paid full-time work experience (or paid part-time work).
