  • NOC 0213 – Computer and Information Systems Managers
  • NOC 2147 – Computer Engineers
  • NOC 2172 – Database Analysts and Data Administrators
  • NOC 2173 – Software Engineers and Designers
  • NOC 2174 – Computer Programmer and Interactive Media Developers
  • NOC 2175 – Web Designers and Developers

This round of Ontario’s Tech Draw was the fifth of the year. The Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS) threshold for skilled migration applicants to Canada invited in this round was between 460 to 468 points.

After this round of the Tech Draw, Ontario has issued 9,082 invitations to skilled migrants to apply for Canadian immigration so far in 2020, with 7,819 of these provincial nominations being granted as of December 10.
