Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program

Posted by Legal Team - Bellissimo Law Group PC

The temporary pause on the intake of applications for the streams: Human Capital Priorities (Express Entry), Employer Pre-screen, International Student (Masters Graduate) and International Student (PhD Graduate) are still in effect. To improve processing times and make the application process easier, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has introduced online application systems in 2017.

On January 23, 2017 a new online application process under the French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream was launched. The OINP indicates that online application systems will help to improve processing times for applicants as well as enhance client service.

If an applicant received a Notification of Interest (NOI) from Ontario before January 23, 2017, the applicant may submit a paper application to the OINP by mail. All applications after launching the online system should be submitted online.

We will continue to monitor the OINP website for updates and hope that remaining temporarily closed programs will be re-opened in the near future.
