244 Immigration Invitations Issued for Early Childhood Educators in Ontario’s Latest Draws

Ontario has issued 244 Canada immigration invitations, targeting early childhood educators (NOC 42202) and assistants through the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) Employer Job Offer stream. 

These invitations were distributed in two separate draws on June 11 and were aimed at the Foreign Workers and International Student categories.

The Foreign Workers category saw 124 invitations with a minimum score of 43. The International Student category received 120 invitations, requiring a minimum score of 65.

For Foreign Worker Stream, applicants must have a permanent and full-time job offer under NOC TEER category 1, 2, or 3. The job must meet the median wage levels for Ontario and be a position essential to the business. 

Applicants already working in the position must have a proposed wage equal to or greater than their current wage. They must have two years of relevant work experience in the previous five years. Relevant mandatory licensing is also a must if the position demands it. They must live abroad or work, study, or visit Canada on a valid permit and intend to settle in Ontario.

International Student Stream applicants need a permanent and full-time job offer under NOC TEER category 1, 2, or 3, Skill Type 0, or Skill Levels A or B. The job must meet the low wage levels for Ontario and be essential to the business. 

Those already working in the position must have a proposed wage equal to or greater than their current wage. Applicants must have graduated or met the requirements of a full-time minimum two-year degree from a publicly-funded Canadian college or university. 

Alternatively, they must have completed a full-time minimum one-year post-graduate diploma program from a publicly-funded Canadian college or university. 

At least half the studies must have been completed in Canada, and applications must be submitted within two years of completing the course. Legal status in Ontario is also required.

These draws highlight Ontario’s focus on attracting skilled early childhood educators to meet the province’s growing demand in this sector.
