995 international students and temporary foreign workers with profiles in Ontario’s EOI system invited in recent PNP draw

On September 21, Ontario issued a second set of invitations, inviting 995 applicants to register for a provincial nomination.

Candidates who have profiles in the Expression of Interest (EOI) pool were invited by the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). Candidates may have been eligible for one of two types of Employer Job Offers. A total of 406 people who might be qualified for the Foreign Worker Stream were invited. A minimum score of 37 was required for these candidates. Because it was a broad draw, there were no specific jobs or geography criteria. Another 523 students were asked to apply for a nomination in the International Student Stream’s general draw.

To be invited, these individuals needed an EOI score of at least 61. The OINP also sent out 66 invitations to immigrants who had registered for the Regional Immigration Pilot and who would be eligible for the same two Employer Job Offer streams. Foreign workers received 36 invitations, while international students received 30.

About the Foreign Worker stream

Foreign nationals with an eligible work offer from a company in Ontario can apply for the Ontario Foreign Worker Stream under the Employer Job Offer category. As long as the candidate matches the eligibility conditions, it is not required to apply from within Canada.

Applicants must have the equivalent of two years of work experience in a skilled occupation, have an approved employment offer in Ontario, and want to immigrate to the province, among other requirements, to be eligible. To apply for the Provincial Nominee Program (PNPs), applicants must first create an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile on the Ontario website. The profile will be added to the EOI pool once it has been registered. Based on the information provided, Ontario will assign a score.

About the International Student Stream

Foreign nationals with an eligible work offer from an employer in Ontario can apply for the Ontario International Student Stream under the Employer Job Offer category.

Among other requirements, applicants must have finished a program at a Canadian Designated Learning Institution, have an approved job offer in Ontario, and want to immigrate to the province. To obtain an invitation to apply for this program, one has to register an EOI profile on the Ontario website. After that, the profile will be added to the EOI pool, and the candidate will be given a score depending on the files submitted. Human capital elements that the province has concluded will reflect the potential to integrate into the labor market are given points.
