The Canadian province of Ontario is the pride of Canada. This enormous province, situated in the east-central part of the country, is home the nation’s largest city, Toronto; the national capital, Ottawa; and numerous other cities, towns, and communities that have rolled out a red-carpet welcome to the migrants from across the globe for several decades.

Much like other provinces and territories in the nation, Ontario runs and manages its own specific provincial nominee programme, and it is called the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). It is basically an economic immigration scheme molded to assist the province to fulfill its priorities related to its labor market and economic development. The province manages the OINP in association with the Canadian federal administration, via the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

The OINP permits the administration of Ontario to offer nomination to the people for movement to the province. The OINP is one of the finest and most useful of the nation’s different PNPs, with streams and categories perfectly tailored to admit trained manpower, graduates, and business people.

Here we will only talk about the skilled worker categories. The OINP admits petitions under these skilled worker immigration categories:


As the name suggests, it is the most comprehensive immigration class in the OINP. The same enables the various recruiters/companies in the province to sign-up the overseas workers for the different sanctioned skills openings up-for-grabs. These are categorized by Ottawa as "NOC 0, A, or B Level." These workers could be residing either overseas or in the Maple Leaf Country when the petition is submitted. Both the recruiters/firms and the overseas candidates have to present the petitions. It is required that the applications clearly illustrate that both the involved parties completely fulfill the various terms & conditions for eligibility. In case all these are fulfilled, a nomination of certification can be given. The province has also introduced the Employer Job Offer In-Demand Skills Stream. It is for the labor force in some specific construction & agriculture professions.


  •   Ontario Express Entry: Human Capital Priorities Stream

It allows the OINP to proffer nomination to those who have the eligibility to enter the Canadian federal Express Entry Pool and who possess the necessary education, skilled job experience, language skills, and other characteristics, to aid them fruitfully establish and join in the region’s labor market and societies.

  •   Ontario Express Entry: French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream
