Do You Want To Work and Live in Ontario?
If you are interested in living and working in Ontario, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program may be for you. Ontario is Canada’s fastest growing province with cities such Toronto and Ottawa growing at a fast pace. Job opportunities in Ontario are an attractive option for many foreign workers seeking stable, long term employment.
Being the most populated Canadian province doesn’t mean that Ontario is sufficiently meeting the territorial demands for work and labor force. The province of Ontario still desires to attract more immigrant workers by participating in the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
The OINP is an employer-driven program in that candidates cannot apply unless they have a permanent full-time job offer from an Ontario employer, or have obtained a PhD from a publicly-funded Ontario university. There is generally a two-step process to nomination.
Ontario PNP’s Two-step Process to Nomination
Ontario has 4 different immigration categories. You apply for the Employer eligibility, business and international student categories through those specific streams. Ontario also uses Canada’s Express Entry system as a way to streamline the application process.
