Ontario is continuing to welcome newcomers while helping the province's employers attract skilled workers and responding to the needs of the labour market, with enhancements to the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP).
The program allows Ontario to nominate for permanent residence people who have the skills and experience needed to contribute to the province's economy, helping employers to meet their labour needs.
Ontario is enhancing the program with changes to the following streams:
The province also continues to modernize the OINP application process this year with a new, paperless online system and improved customer service to help employers find the skilled workers they need sooner.
Attracting and retaining skilled newcomers is part of the government's plan to create jobs, grow the economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“Immigration is key to stimulating innovation, growing our workforce and keeping us competitive in a global economy. Ontario’s booming construction and agricultural sectors need skilled trades workers to continue growing. Through immigration we can provide employers in these sectors with the talent they need to prosper and make our province even stronger.”
