The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is now accepting intake applications for its Regional Immigration Pilot. In order to qualify, candidates must meet the required criteria for anyone of the OINP Employer Job Offer streams. 

Until recently, Expression of Interests (EoIs) for two streams: Foreign Workers & International Graduates under Employer Job Offer category was paused leaving only In-demand Skills stream open to accept applications. The latest announcement appears to have opened a new pathway for foreign talent under all streams in Employer Job Offer category. 

The three Ontario communities that are open to Regional Immigration Pilot include Chatham-Kent, Cornwall, Quinte West/Belleville. 

OINP has allocated 150 nominations for this two-year pilot. The pilot will help foreign & highly skilled immigrants get lucrative jobs in small and rural Ontario communities. Further, it shall also provide an opportunity to easily qualify for permanent residence in Canada.


Qualify for OINP Employer Job Offer streams

Foreign Workers stream for skilled workers, International Student stream for recent graduates from Ontario institutes and In-Demand Skills stream for sectors like agriculture, construction etc. come under the Employer Job Offer category. These are non-Express Entry aligned streams of OINP

Candidates must have a full-time and permanent job offer from employers in Ontario in order to qualify for the category. It is not necessary for the applicant to be living in Canada at the time of applying. However, one must ensure:
  • Occupation for which job offer in Ontario is secured is classified as “skilled” under Canada’s National Occupation Classification (NOC) Type/Level 0, A, or B. 
  • Have at least two years of cumulative full-time work experience, either in Canada or abroad, at the time of applying.
