Ontario Launching Expression of Interest System for Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program

Blog posted on by Evelyn Ackah in Permanent Residence and Provincial Nominee Programs

Ontario Launching Expression of Interest System for Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is launching an Expression of Interest (EOI) points-based system that ranks candidates based on human capital and labour market factors. In announcing the new system on March 15, OINP announced that have closed the affected streams to new applicants until the new system launches in the near future. The EOI points-based registration system helps Ontario select skilled economic immigrants to meet the province’s labour market needs. There have been many complaints about OINP's system and in the Fall of 2020 they announced they were researching a new, fairer system for applicants to express an interest to apply to the OINP.

The OINP Expression of Interest system will apply to the following streams:

Points will be awarded based on the following qualifications:

  1. Level and field of education
  2. Where they completed their studies
  3. Proficiency in English or French
  4. Plans to live Toronto or the Ontario region
  5. Skill and work experience level, earnings history, other factors relevant to prospects in the Ontario job market
  6. Labour market needs in the province or region of the province

EOI systems are already in use by other Provincial Nominee Programs, and the system is designed to be fairer and provide more opportunities for applicants to apply. In announcing the new system, OINP said the Expression of Interest system will:

  • strategically manage intake
  • increase the OINP’s labour market responsiveness
  • better respond to regional labour market needs

Canada's Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

Are You Eligible to Move to Canada?

Each province or territory has its own specific immigration PNP procedures. In order to become a nominee, applicants must first submit an application to the province they are interested in. If they are accepted, they can make an application to IRCC for their Permanent Residence. When applying to IRCC at the federal stage, the federal government will review issues such as medical tests, criminal background and financial stability in making a final decision.
