About the program:
Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream is an immigration stream under the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). It gives foreign workers with the required skilled work experience, language abilities and education the opportunity to apply to permanently live and work in Ontario.
To qualify for this stream you must have a valid profile in Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC’s) Express Entry system and receive a Notification of Interest from Ontario before you can apply online to be nominated by the Ontario government for permanent residence.
Please note that the OINP is one of many avenues to qualify for permanent residency. This employer-driven stream is designed to give employers who can't find skilled workers an opportunity to recruit international talent. OINP's primary focus is on finding international talent who have the necessary skills to meet employment demand in Ontario.
If you have any questions about OINP, express entry or permanent residence please contact us directly.
