The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)In-Demand Skills Stream stands as a key initiative, aligning the province’s economic needs with skilled individuals eager to contribute to Ontario’s workforce. This stream is part of the broader OINP, which allows the province to nominate individuals for permanent residence in Canada based on their ability to contribute to Ontario’s economic development. It is tailored to address specific labor market shortages by targeting occupations in high demand within the province. By prioritizing occupations that are crucial to the region’s development, this stream provides a pathway for skilled workers to not only enhance their careers but also contribute significantly to the vibrant communities of Ontario, Canada. The program aims to attract qualified professionals who possess the necessary skills and experience to fill these gaps, thereby contributing to the growth and prosperity of the province. Applicants under this stream must meet certain eligibility criteria related to their work experience, education, language proficiency, and job offer in an eligible occupation. The In-Demand Skills Stream is a dynamic program that responds to the evolving needs of Ontario’s labor market. It provides an opportunity for skilled workers to contribute their talents to the province while pursuing a pathway to permanent residence in Canada. Prospective applicants should carefully review the eligibility criteria and requirements to ensure a successful application under this stream. 

You can also get to know other immigration pathways more suited to each particular situation. All of our fees and packages are also available! Overall, the OINP The Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream is not merely a means to obtain immigration status; rather, it symbolizes a collaborative effort between Ontario and skilled professionals worldwide to shape a workforce that thrives on diversity, skills, and a shared commitment to building a prosperous future. You can also get acquainted with other OINP programs.

No, this specific stream gives the edge to professionals who possess in-demand skills, allowing them to apply with just 9 months of cumulative work experience that was gained in the three years prior to the submission of the application.

This stream targets professionals in the fields of agriculture, construction, trucking or home support work. These professionals must have an eligible job offer in Ontario and can apply both from inside and outside Canada

No, the In-Demand Skills Stream requires paid, full-time work experience in an eligible occupation and an eligible job offer in Ontario. Self-employed work is not eligible under this stream.

Yes, owning a valid work permit grants applicants 10 points, while having tenure at their current workplace (working more than 6 months) adds 3 points. So, yes, this is a good way to make a better candidacy and submit a stronger application.

No, applicants must have work experience in the same in-demand occupation as their job offer to be eligible for the In-Demand Skills Stream. Work experience in a different occupation is not considered for this stream.

If you have work experience in multiple in-demand occupations, you should choose the one that aligns with your job offer. Your eligibility will be assessed based on the selected in-demand occupation.
