Ontario PNP held two provincial draws on May 26 inviting 158 international students to apply for provincial nomination.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invited applicants who had profiles in the new Expression of Interest (EOI) pool and who may be eligible for the job offer from Ontario employers: International students stream.
Of all those invited, 147 were included in the general draw, where applicants needed an EOI score of at least 73. The remaining 11 were invited as part of the regional immigration pilot project, where no minimum score was required.
The Ontario International Student Stream in the Employer Job Offer category is open to individuals who have a qualifying job offer from an employer in the province.
You do not need to apply from within Canada if you meet all of the eligibility requirements. You must have completed a program at an approved educational institution in Canada, have a qualifying job offer in Ontario, and intend to immigrate to the province, among others.
If you want to apply for Ontario PNP, you have to register your EOI profile on the Ontario website.
After you have registered your profile it will be submitted into the EOI pool. Ontario will give you a score based on several factors such as the skill level of your job posting and work experience, salary, education, language skills, etc.
Ontario scores EOI profiles based on factors that the province says will help select immigrants with the potential to prosper. You get points for the skill level of your job posting as well as for your work experience in Canada. Points are awarded based on National Occupational Classification (NOC).
The OINP scoring system is different depending on the stream you are applying to. In addition to skill level and work experience, it also takes into account your salary, education, knowledge of official languages, ??and the region in which you study or work. The province also awards 10 points at its discretion to meet labor market needs.
