Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)

With more than 13.5 million population, Ontario is the most multicultural province of Canada. It is where 40% of the immigrants each year choose to settle. The Ontario Immigrant nominee program is a program through which Ontario selects individuals and families for permanent residency. This selection is based on the labor market and the economic development priorities of the area.


There are two steps under the provincial program through which immigrants to Canada can acquire

permanent resident status. The applicant receives a PNP nomination first, which is used to apply for

permanent residence through the Express Entry. To ensure an efficient and faster passage to such individuals, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada- IRCC created the online system of Expres Entry.

The Express Entry is an assessment and selection system that the IRCC uses to choose candidates for immigration. It is part of the immigration program designed to help manage applications.
