    Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)

    Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program
    Ontario is Canada’s most popular landing destination for immigrants from around the world.

    As Canada’s most populous province, nearly 40 percent of Canadians call Ontario home. Ontario is also home to Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, and its largest city, Toronto. In many ways, Ontario is the center of Canada’s economic, social, and political life.

    Ontario’s Provincial Nominee Program is called the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)

    Through this program, prospective immigrants with the skills and experience targeted by the province may receive an Ontario Provincial Nomination Certificate, which will allow that foreign national to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence with processing times that are faster than other Canadian immigration classes.

    The OINP accepts applications under the following immigration categories:

    • Ontario Express Entry

       

      • Ontario Express Entry: Human Capital Priorities Stream
      • Ontario Express Entry: French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream
      • Ontario Express Entry Skilled Trades Stream
    • General Category (sometimes referred to as Employer Job Offer Category)

       

      • Foreign Workers with a Job Offer Stream
      • Employer Job Offer In-Demand Skills Stream
    • International Student Category

       

      • International Students with a Job Offer Stream
      • International Students – Masters Graduate Stream
      • International Students – PhD Graduate Stream
    • Business Category

       

      • Entrepreneur Stream
      • Corporate Stream
      • Investors Category (discontinued)
