What is an Expression of Interest system? 

As for the previous system in Ontario, the “first come, first served” approach has faced much criticism on the grounds that it provides differential access to the less privileged. The criticism is also based on the receipt of applications. It more so often happens that program categories like Employer’s job offer: International student stream, Foreign Worker stream reach its registration limit just hours after opening.

The new EOI system is expected to overcome the present challenges. As a first step, interested applicants will now be placed in a pool. Following this, the individuals will be asked to provide personal and other labor market and human capital information. 

Based on the above information will the candidates be evaluated, scored, and ranked. OINP will review the scores and select profiles above a uniquely determined cut-off score in each EOI draw. 

This shall form the basis of Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence. 


The proposed changes draw much of its similarity from the federal Express Entry system. Not only that but several other provinces use the same EOI system.  

In the official press release, Ontario meant for “more strategically managing the intake, increase the OINP’s labor market responsiveness, and better respond to regional labor market needs.” through the introduction of a new EOI system. 

The proposed changes are undergoing a 45-day public consultation period that ends October 23, 2020. Only then will the proposed changes effectively take place.
