Ontario PNP Next Draw Prediction for 2024
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) typically issues ITAs to eligible candidates on a bi-monthly basis, although there may be exceptions based on the needs of the OINP application inventory.
Ontario, being Canada’s most commercial province, provides numerous pathways for immigrants aiming to study, work, and settle within its borders. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is a major contributor to economic immigration in Canada.
Overview of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program
Launched in 2007 to address labor market shortages across various industries, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program seeks skilled professionals to support and sustain the province’s economy. Ontario, particularly through its Provincial Nominee Program (OINP), remains a preferred choice for immigrants seeking permanent residency in Canada. In 2021, Toronto and Ottawa, two of Ontario’s prominent cities, welcomed over half of all new Canadian permanent residents.
Pathways under the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program
- Human Capital Program Ontario
- Employer Job Offer Program Ontario
- Business Immigration Program Ontario
These pathways include both base and enhanced streams. Enhanced streams are aligned with the Express Entry system, a federal immigration program managing key economic immigration intakes in Canada. Candidates nominated under enhanced streams receive 600 additional points in the CRS, significantly enhancing their chances of receiving an Invitation to Apply for Canadian permanent residency.
Eligible candidates interested in provincial nomination under the OINP must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) and are assessed based on the Ontario PNP points calculator and provided details. While candidates nominated under enhanced streams are directly aligned with Express Entry, those under base streams must apply directly to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
