Canada Provincial Nominee Progam (PNP) including Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) receives one-third of all newcomers to Canada each year. OINP sends out some 8,000 invitations to apply through multiple streams each year.

The Canadian province of Ontario is known to accept foreign skilled immigrants, international students who wish to study, work & settle in Canada permanently. Such immigration aspirants need not necessarily have a job offer to immigrate to Canada. The province offers better employment opportunities and higher wages.

Ontario Immigration Nominee Program: Immigration Options

If you do not have a job offer in Canada yet and wish to immigrate for a better career and lifestyle, consider Ontario Express Entry: Human Capital Priorities Stream. This stream allows the province to search for and nominate foreign skilled workers who have submitted a profile using the federal Express Entry pool. A job offer is therefore not required.

Going by this year’s trend, 4,851 Notification of Interests (NoIs) have already been issued to Express Entry candidates by OINP.

To be eligible for the OINP Express Entry-Human Capital Priority Stream you will need to:

  • Have an active Express Entry profile;
  • Meet the eligibility requirements for one of the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) or Canadian Experience Class (CEC);
  • Meet the stream’s work experience requirements;
  • Have a Canadian Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Ph.D. degree or an equivalent foreign education credential;
  • Demonstrate a language proficiency level of 7 or higher of the Canadian Language Benchmark;
  • Intend to reside in Ontario;
  • Have sufficient funds to cover settlement costs in Ontario.
