Ontario’s Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) – Non Express Entry

    • What is Ontario’s Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) – Non Express Stream

      Ontario’s Immigrant Nominee Program offers various streams for individuals who want to immigrate to the province. The non-Express Entry process for Ontario involves the following steps:

      • – Eligibility Assessment: Applicants must determine their eligibility for one of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) streams. These streams include the Employer Job Offer streams, the Human Capital streams, and the Business streams.

      • – Submission of Expression of Interest (EOI): Depending on the stream, applicants may need to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the OINP. The EOI typically includes information about the applicant’s education, work experience, language proficiency, and other relevant details.

      • – Selection: Qualified candidates who have submitted an EOI may be selected by the Ontario government based on various factors such as the applicant’s score in the EOI pool, the current needs of Ontario’s labor market, and other eligibility criteria specific to each stream.

      • – Invitation to Apply (ITA): Selected candidates may receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for provincial nomination from the OINP. The ITA will provide instructions on how to proceed with the application process.

      • – Application Submission: Once an ITA is received, applicants have a specified time frame to submit a complete application to the OINP. The application should include all required documents and information as per the stream’s guidelines.

      • – Nomination: If the application is approved, the applicant will receive a provincial nomination certificate from Ontario.

      • – Federal Application: With the provincial nomination certificate, the applicant can then apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent residence. The federal government will assess the application based on admissibility requirements, such as health, security, and background checks.

      • – Permanent Residence: If the federal application is approved, the applicant and their family members (if applicable) will be granted permanent residence in Canada.

      It’s important for applicants to carefully review the specific requirements and processes for the OINP stream they are interested in, as they may vary. They should also ensure they have the most up-to-date information by consulting the official website of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program.
