Ontario’s Immigration Program Attracts Early Childhood Educators with 244 Invitations

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has recently issued invitations to candidates through two Employer Job Offer streams – The Foreign Worker Stream and the International Student Stream.

This initiative specifically targets the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 42202, which includes early childhood educators and assistants.

On June 17, 2024, a draw was conducted, resulting in 106 invitations being issued to eligible profiles with a score of 39 or above. 

This draw focused on early childhood educators and assistants, reflecting the significant demand for skilled professionals in this field in Ontario

The invitations indicate a moderate intake to meet specific labor market needs without overwhelming the system.

In a separate draw conducted on the same day, 184 invitations were issued through the International Student Stream. The score range for invited candidates in this stream was 60 and above. 

This draw also targeted early childhood educators and assistants, highlighting the continuous demand for these professionals and emphasizing the importance of early childhood education. 

The higher intake in the International Student Stream reflects a strategic focus on attracting recently graduated international students with local education who may integrate more readily into the workforce. 

The higher score threshold of 60 suggests a more competitive selection process aimed at attracting highly qualified individuals with strong academic backgrounds.

Applicants must meet specific criteria to be eligible for the Foreign Worker Stream. They must have a permanent and full-time job offer in a NOC TEER category 1, 2, or 3 role and meet Ontario’s median wage levels. 

They must also have accumulated two years of relevant work experience within the last five years, possess the necessary licensing if required, and intend to settle in Ontario.

For the International Student Stream, applicants must have a permanent and full-time job offer in a NOC TEER category 1, 2, or 3 roles or in a Skill Type 0 or Skill Levels A or B position that meets Ontario’s lower wage levels. 

They must have graduated from a publicly-funded Canadian college or university within the last two years and completed at least half of their academic program in Canada. 

These draws highlight Ontario’s strategic approach to addressing labor market needs by attracting skilled professionals in early childhood education through tailored immigration streams.
