Ontario Immigration Nominee Program

What is OINP?

The abbreviation OINP stands for the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program. It collaborates with the government of Canada through IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship). This program is for foreign employees, students, and others who wish to apply for Ontario permanent residency.
The OINP identifies and nominates candidates for permanent residency who possess the qualifications required in Ontario. Additionally, once they have been selected, the Government of Canada makes the final decision to approve the selections.

In order to be eligible for the OINP program, you must:

Workers with language proficiency, education, work experience, and a Canada Express Entry profile should apply to this category.

A job offer for a permanent position from an Ontario-based business is another way to be eligible for OINP.

Entrepreneurs who wish to start a new company in the province or purchase an existing one may be nominated.
