Ontario Immigrant
Nominee Program (OINP)

Ontario is one of the eleven provinces of Canada. It is the second largest province in the country and is also home to the country’s most populous state, i.e., Toronto. Ontario, apart from being the economic hub of the country, is also home to vast areas of lush forests. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is an immigration program of the Canadian province of Ontario that has been managed by the governments of Ontario and Canada through Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). 

Candidates who have shown their interest in living and working in Ontario and are also willing to help raise the economy of the province by utilizing their skills will receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) from Ontario to submit their application for permanent residence in Ontario. Once the government of Ontario nominates a candidate, the government of Canada makes the final decision on permanent residence.
