Who can apply for OINP?
The OINP recognizes and nominates people for permanent residence who have the skills and experience the Ontario economy needs, and the Government of Canada makes the final decision to approve applications for permanent residence.
There are three ways you may qualify for a nomination:
Employer job offer category: for workers who already have a permanent job offer from an Ontario employer
Human capital category: for workers who have valuable work experience, education, language skills, and a profile in Canada’s Express Entry system; or for graduate students
Business category: for entrepreneurs looking to start a new or buy an existing business in Ontario
In order to become a nominee, applicants must first submit an application to the province. If they are accepted, they can make an application to IRCC for their Permanent Residence.
The OINP is a great way of ensuring you have the best chances at a streamlined immigration method and will work in an industry in which you have specific skills.
