Another round of invitations held by Ontario under the pathway to Canadian permanent residence that goes through the provincial and territorial (PT) governments.
On January 11, 2022, Ontario invited a total of 1,084 to apply for a nomination under the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). Ontario is part of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), commonly referred to as Canadian PNP.
Invitations to apply (ITA) were issued under all the three Employer Job Offer (EJO) streams.
Those invited must apply online, provided they qualify under the stream identified in their invitation to apply. The OINP application must be submitted within 14 calendar days of receiving the ITA from Ontario PNP.
The score allotted following an assessment by the OINP is referred to as the Expression of Interest score, or EOI score, of that individual.
A full-time and permanent job offer from an Ontario employer will be required to be eligible for the Employer Job Offer category of the OINP.

With a significant share of Canada’s natural resources and a diversified industrial economy, Ontario is also the wealthiest Canadian province.
