The Canadian province of Ontario held a new provincial draw under its ‘base’ Masters Graduates provincial stream on December 21.
Masters Graduates provincial stream under Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) allows recent International student graduates holding a master’s degree from an eligible Ontario institution to qualify for immigration, i.e., permanent residency in Canada.
All the 725 invited candidates required their Expression of Interest (EOI) score to be above 46 in order to secure their invitation for a provincial nomination.
Invited candidates now have about 14 days to complete the application process.
About Ontario Masters Graduate Stream
Ontario Masters Graduate stream was launched to retain more international students. Canada invited a total of 3,890 candidates under the OINP Masters Graduate stream in 2022.
December 21 PNP draw is the seventh draw in 2022 extending invitations for provincial nominations to masters graduates.
Any aspirants willing to be considered for the Masters Graduate stream will have to sign up with Ontario’s e-Filing Portal and register their expression of interest (EOI).
