ONTARIO PNP PROGRAM

Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)

Ontario is Canada’s most popular landing destination for immigrants from around the world and also the most densely populated province, Home to Toronto.

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 a provincial nomination from Ontario, after which they can apply for Canadian permanent residence with the Government of Canada. 

The OINP accepts applications under the following immigration categories:

Human Capital Category

The OINP Human Capital Category consists of five streams divided into two categories: Ontario's Express Entry streams and the International Graduates streams.

Ontario's Express Entry Streams

The OINP's Express Entry streams are aligned with the federal government's Express Entry selection system. Candidates can only apply for these streams if they have an active Express Entry profile and if they have received an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination. 

Ontario Express Entry: Human Capital Priorities Stream

This stream enables the OINP to nominate individuals who are eligible to enter the federal Express Entry pool and who have the required education, skilled work experience, language ability, and other characteristics to successfully establish themselves and integrate into Ontario’s labour market and communities.
