Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)

Express Entry is a new application management system introduced by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to manage permanent resident applications for skilled migration to Canada. To qualify for Express Entry and be considered for nomination by Ontario, candidates must qualify for one of two federal immigration programs:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • Canadian Experience Class

Ontario Express Entry

Ontario has created two new streams for skilled workers who want to live and work permanently in Ontario. The two new streams draw from the Federal Express Entry selection system.

  • Ontario Express Entry: Human Capital Priorities Stream
  • Ontario Express Entry: French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream

This enables Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) to nominate individuals that have qualified for Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s Express Entry pool and who have the required education, skilled work experience, language ability, and other factors to help them successfully establish and integrate into Ontario’s labour market and communities.

Steps for Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program

1. Register for Express Entry

2. OINP identifies candidates in Express Entry pool

3. Apply to OINP under the Human Capital Priorities Stream

4. Accept nomination from Ontario and apply for permanent residency

You may not apply to OINP under the Human Capital Priorities Stream if you have not received a PT Notification of Interest from Ontario through your MyCIC account

Canada’s Business Immigration Program seeks to attract experienced business people to Canada to support the development of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy. The program includes three classes:

The Immigrant Investor Class

The Self-Employed Persons Class

The Entrepreneur Class

Business immigrants are expected to contribute to the Canadian economy by owning and managing businesses in Canada or by making an investment in the Canadian economy.

The Business Immigration Program allows experienced business people to immigrate to Canada and apply their capital, entrepreneurial skills and knowledge of markets and technology within the Canadian economy.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THREE CATEGORIES:

Investors must make a C$800,000 investment but are not subject to monitoring or other regulatory requirements once they arrive in Canada.

Entrepreneurs must invest and participate in the management of a business in Canada that creates at least one additional job for someone other than a member of their immediate family. They must report regularly on their progress.

Self-employed persons are selected based on their intention and ability to create a job for themselves in cultural or athletic activities, or to purchase and manage a farm in Canada. They are not subject to monitoring or other regulatory requirements once they arrive in Canada.

REQUIRED SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS:

In addition to the usual documents required to support any application for immigration to Canada, you must provide documents that demonstrate your past business experience, such as:

  • financial statements
  • corporate and personal income tax returns
  • tax assessments
  • bank statements
  • business licences
  • minute books
  • letters of reference

The immigrants who are eligible to use this family sponsoring process are regarded as the Family Class.

If you become a permanent resident, you can live, study and work in Canada.

When you arrive in Canada as a permanent resident, you must make every reasonable effort to provide for your own essential needs and those of your family.

If you sponsor a relative to come to Canada as a permanent resident, you are responsible for supporting your relative financially when he or she arrives. As a sponsor, you must make sure your spouse or relative does not need to seek financial assistance from the government.

The process to sponsor your family begins when you, as a citizen or permanent resident in Canada, apply to be a sponsor.

There are two different processes for sponsoring your family. One process is used for sponsoring your spouse, conjugal or common-law partner and/or dependent children. The other one is to sponsor other eligible relatives.
