The Skilled Trades Stream allows the OINP to search the Express Entry pool for candidates currently living in Ontario that have a minimum of one-year full-time work experience, or the equivalent in part-time work, at a skilled trade recorded in Minor Group 633 or Major Group 72, 73, or 82 beneath Canada’s National Occupational Classification (NOC).
