The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is the Provincial Nominee Program of the Ontario province. The program allows prospective immigrants with the skills and experience targeted by the province to apply and receive provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
In order to be eligible to apply under OINP, Express Entry candidates need to meet the Human Capital Priorities Stream’s eligibility requirements along with having a minimum one year of continuous paid full-time or the equivalent paid part-time work experience.
With a provincial nomination, Express Entry candidates can earn 600 additional points toward their CRS scores, which enable them to get prioritized for an invitation for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.
Candidates, who received an NOI from Ontario, now have 45 days to submit their application for the provincial nomination to OINP.
