About the Employer Job Offer stream
Foreign workers with a job offer in a skilled occupation can apply to live and work permanently in Ontario through the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream.

Foreign employees both inside and outside of Canada are eligible for this stream.
Before submitting an online application to be nominated for permanent residency by the Ontario government, you must first register in the OINP's Expression of Interest System and obtain an invitation to apply.
In order to be considered under the Employer Job Offer stream applicants need to submit an application to the federal government through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) once they are nominated. They are the ones who are selected get a permanent residency.

The results of this recent Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw were made public by Ontario on June 29. With the exception of Quebec and Nunavut, the majority of Canadian provinces and territories run their own PNPs. Interested candidates may receive invitations from these programmes to submit an application for a provincial nomination. Provincial nomination can considerably boost the prospects of getting permanent resident status, even if it is not the same as it in and of itself.
