Ontario is Canada’s most populous province, with over 40% of the country living there. More people come to Canada and make Ontario their first home than any other province or territory. This year, the Government of Canada increased the allocation for the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) by 20% to 6,600. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is now the largest PNP in the country.

Each province and territory (except Quebec) is allowed to nominate foreign nationals to enter Canada as Permanent Residents (PRs) under its Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) offers International students, foreign-trained professionals as well as skilled workers required for industries experiencing labour shortages. The PNP allows the provincial government to nominate qualified foreign nationals with the skills and experience to make positive contributions to Ontario’s economy.

You can submit an application for The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) under the following streams:
