How to Qualify for Different Job Offers in the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)

Are you interested in being part of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program? As an aspiring OINP benefactor, you stand a chance to qualify for the following job offers:

1. French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream, Human Capital Priorities Stream, Skilled Trades Stream

These three programs are closely related because they only authorize OINP to reach out to you only if you are qualified. Do not rush into submitting your applying directly through OINP. Wait for OINP to declare its interest on your case through their online portal, instead. Remember to apply for the provincial nomination application using your supporting documents within the specified timeframe, plus a non-refundable fee of $1,500.

2. Employer Job Offer streams

If you are interested in any of the three job offer streams under this program, be prepared to work fulltime. This means you will work for a minimum of 30 hours per week and a guaranteed permanent position from your previous employer.
To qualify for this program, your discipline and performance from your previous workplace will be assessed. As expected, OINP will also gauge your former employer’s performance. This only applies to employers who support immigration initiatives of this type.
