Immigration Programs

Ontario Immigrant Nomination Program:

The OINP is Ontario's economic immigration program which allows the province to assess and nominate persons to become permanent residents based on their skills, experience, and what the Ontario economy needs.

Once you have received a nomination from the province, you will be required to apply for permanent residency and the Government of Canada will make the final decision to approve the application.
