Ontario is authorized to nominate 6,900 candidates for immigration for the Canadian PR through its Nominee Program in 2019. It has the most population among the provinces and remains a popular destination for many immigrants to Canada every year.
Provincial Nominee Program of Canada gives nine provinces and two territories the ability to select a fixed number of immigrants for Canadian PR to fill up specific needs in the labor market. Last year, the province had an allocation of 6,600 nominations. Also, it received a target of 250 additional nominations at the end of 2018. Furthermore, it had made a request for 1,000 additional nominations during the year, taking the total to 7,600 nominations owing to strong demand for the Program. The increase in the target for 2019 reflects that Canada has increased its annual admissions target in the PNP segment. The national target for the present year is 61,000 new PRs, reflecting an increase of 6,000 over the target in 2018.
Furthermore, the 2019 allocation has an allocation of 6,650 nominations and 250 spaces for intermediate-skilled Temporary Foreign Workers. This is a part of the new initiative announced by IRCC on March 12. The allocation of 6,650 nominations will happen through the various immigration pathways of the OINP. This also includes the popular Human Capital Priorities Stream linked to the Express Entry.
Ontario has immigration streams with a link to the federal EE system that administers the pool of candidates for main immigration categories:
- Canadian Experience Class
- Federal Skilled Trades Class and finally
- Federal Skilled Worker Class,
- Steps for provincial nomination
Moreover, the Streams linked to the EE permit the OINP to take up the search in the federal pool and also give the invitation to candidates matching with the provincial/federal criteria for applying to seek the provincial nomination for PR.
All EE candidates having the provincial nomination get 600 additional points to their EE rank score and move ahead to get the IRCC invitation for applying to the permanent residence in Canada.
The Human Capital Priorities Stream was the popular immigration pathway in Ontario in 2018. Moreover, it issued 2,190 out of the 6,850 nominations issued by the province. The French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream and the Skilled Trades Stream issued 1,035 nominations through OINP. The OINP has many streams operating independently and these are called the base nomination streams.
