Ontario PNP

Ontario’s provincial immigration program aims to help prospective immigrants who have the skills and experience to boost the province’s economy. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has nine different streams, which applicants must qualify for in order for their application to be under further consideration.

Ontario

Why Ontario?

Ontario is Canada’s second-most populous province with an estimated population of 15 million. Ontario consistently ranks highly as a place to live in global quality-of-life rankings and has a strong, thriving economy with diverse job opportunities in sectors such as financial services, life sciences, advanced manufacturing, information and communications technology (ICT), tourism, transportation, education, and clean technology. Also, the province’s capital city of Toronto is a global centre for business and finance that offers extensive career opportunities in financial services, retail, marketing and sales trades, media, health care to name just a few.

How to apply for OINP

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program accepts applications in three different ways. Three streams are linked with Express Entry and the invitation can be received in the applicant’s profile. Another five streams are served by Ontario’s Expression of Interest System. Finally, the Entrepreneur Stream has its own portal. All streams of OINP are points-based. This means you need to score enough points to get invited.
