The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)



The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is the province’s economic immigration program. It works in partnership with the Government of Canada through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).


Foreign workers, international students and others with the right skills, experience and education apply to the OINP for a nomination.


The OINP recognizes and nominates people for permanent residence who have the skills and experience the Ontario economy needs, and the Government of Canada makes the final decision to approve applications for permanent residence.
