As per a recent update, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program [OINP] “expression of interest system is now open for intake” under the In-Demand Skills Stream of the Employer Job Offer category.
Ontario is among the Canadian provinces that are a part of the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP].
Previously, Ontario PNP had introduced an expression of interest [EOI] system for 5 OINP streams. This is the 3rd stream to be opened up for intake by the OINP under the EOI system.
|There is no intake window as such.|
The EOI system for Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills stream will remain open throughout the year. An EOI profile might be registered for this OINP immigration pathway at any time.
Along with conveying an interest in being considered for the stream, an EOI profile also denotes an interest of the applicant in settling within Ontario on being granted Canadian permanent residence.
An EOI profile is not a visa application.
Once invited by the OINP to apply, the candidate can then proceed to submitting their complete application for the Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills stream of Ontario PNP.
All stream criteria must be met by the candidate at the time of registering an EOI profile with the OINP.
