Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) was launched in 2007. The program aims to attract skilled laborers to the province and hence address the skill shortages in targeted areas. The program approximately nominates 8000 immigrants per year.

Provincial Nominee Program

The Provincial Nominee Program or PNP is a great way to receive a Canadian permanent residency. Each PNP has one stream that is aligned with the Express Entry System, known as ‘Enhanced Nominations’. The advantage of enhanced PNP is that they award an extra CRS score of 600 points, which will guarantee PR to the applicant through express entry. Also, there is another stream under the PNP, known as ‘the base stream’. Here, you can apply to a PNP stream directly and once you obtain a provincial nomination, the federal government will process your permanent residence application.
