The third In-Demand Skills stream draw in Ontario was also the largest to date.

Under its new intake scheme, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) conducted its third-ever In-Demand Skills stream draw. The new Expression of Interest (EOI) system in Ontario replaces the previous first-come-first-served system, and allows interested applicants to register at any time for a chance to be invited by the province. To put it another way, they "express their interest" in applying for a provincial nomination under the Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

A total of 65 people were chosen in the general draw. Ontario also conducted a draw for the Regional Immigration Pilot, inviting seven people to participate. This stream does not have an EOI score requirement.

Invited candidates were required to have work experience in one of the following occupations, which are listed by sector and by National Occupational Classification (NOC) code.

Health and agricultural occupations:

NOC 3413 – nurse aides, orderlies and patient service associates
