The Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP) allows foreign workers, international students and others with the right skills, experience and education to apply for a nomination for permanent residence in Ontario.
The program is operated by the Ontario government in partnership with the federal government through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and is designed to help Ontario meet its labour market and economic development needs.
What you need to know
The OINP is made up of three categories and each category is divided into several streams:
Employer Job Offer
You must have a full-time and permanent job offer from an Ontario employer to qualify.
The human capital category has two sub-categories, the International Graduate streams and Ontario’s Express Entry streams.
To qualify under the Masters Graduate or PhD Graduate streams, you must have a graduate degree from an eligible Ontario university and apply within two years of getting your degree.
Ontario’s Express Entry
To qualify under Ontario’s Express Entry streams, you must have a profile in the federal government’s Express Entry system and receive a Notification of Interest from Ontario.
