Ontario is likely to issue nearly 7000 nominations for the Canada PR through its Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in 2019. This province is the most popular among Overseas Immigrants, as quoted by CIC News.
The Canada PNP allows 9 Canadian Provinces to send out invitations for Canada PR. This, in turn, helps ease the labour shortage issues in the respective provinces. In 2018, Ontario issued about 6,600 nominations. It was the largest number of nominations to date. Ontario’s PNP program is called Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP).
For the year 2019, Ontario has requested for an additional 1000 nominations. It should help the province to fill the in-demand job positions. The sudden boost in the number of nominations reflects Canada’s need for Overseas Workers. The annual admissions target has also been increased for the year 2019 and 2020.
In 2019, the annual target of Permanent Residents is 61,000. It is an increase of nearly 6,000 from that of 2018. Ontario’s target for this year is 6,650 nominations. An additional of 250 invitations is allocated for intermediate-skilled Overseas Workers. Ontario sends out nominations for the Canada PR through its 3 main Immigration streams –
