Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows associated provinces and territories the ability to present a set number of immigrants for Canadian permanent residence to fulfill the demand market labour in the country, and one of this is the province of Ontario. It is the most populated province and the most chosen destination for most immigrants coming to Canada.
Ontario will be able to be the largest allotment for provincial nominee program this year with the number of 6,900 nominations to accommodate throughout the provinces in the country.
From last years allocation, Ontario accepted 6,850 nominations through the provincial nominee program (PNP). Due to high demand for OINP, Ontario had asked for additional 1,000 nominations for 2019 for a total of 7,600 nominations that they would be able to accommodate. Thus, it results in an increase reflection to Canada’s annual admission target for PNP for both years 2019 and 2020.
The allocation of the nominees would come from different immigration pathways such as Express Entry-linked Human Capital Priorities Stream, Skilled Trades Stream, the French-Speaking Worker Stream; and other immigration streams program that are linked to federal Express Entry system are Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.
Ontario’s Express Entry-linked streams would allow the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program to search and invite those pooled applicants who will match the provincial and federal criteria to be able to get an invitation from IRCC to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
The OINP has a variety of streams to choose for that would work independently for the Express Entry system which is known as the “base” nomination streams. In 2018, the Employer Job Offer: International Student Stream issued the most number in base nomination, then it followed by the Masters Graduate Stream nomination in Ontario.
