Basics on Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker Stream
OINP's Foreign Worker Stream - Employer Job offer category is for skilled workers who have an eligible job offer in the province. You don't necessarily have to apply from within Canada, as long as you meet the eligibility requirements.
To be eligible, you must accumulate the equivalent of two years of work experience in a skilled trade, have a qualifying job offer in Ontario, and intend to immigrate to the province, among other criteria.
If you want to apply for a provincial nomination, the first step is to register an EOI profile on OINP's website. Your profile will be submitted to the EOI pool with the profiles of the other applicants. EOI profile will be assigned points based on your credentials.
How to get points for Ontario PNP?
Ontario ranks EOI profiles based on a number of human capital factors that the province believes will be important in selecting immigrants with the potential to thrive. You get points for the skill level of your job posting as well as your work experience in Canada. Based on your National Occupation Classification (NOC) code, points are assigned to your profile.
The OINP scoring system is different depending on the stream you are applying for. In addition to skill level and work experience, it also takes into account your salary, education, proficiency in official languages, ??and the region in which you study or work. If a candidate meets the labour market needs they can get a maximum of 10 points.
