February 2019, 23

Ontario announced 6,850 nominations for Canada PR in the year 2018 with approximately half going to applicants in the Canadian Express Entry system, a current Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program report reveals.

Known as the O.I.N.P, the program enables Ontario to nominate a fixed economic immigration applicants number in every year for Canadian PR.

The O.I.N.P is the most significant part of the Canadian Provincial Nominee Program, which runs with engaging territories and provinces to expand the economic advantages of immigration more evenly over Canada.

The report declared on Feb 22 says that the 6,850 nominations that province of Ontario was given in the year 2018 will turn into 13,571 new immigrants to the Ontario province with the facility of bringing dependents and spouses.

Express Entry Nominations

Approximately 50% of the nominations announced in the year 2018 went to applicants in the Canadian Government Express Entry system, which controls the pool of applicants for 03 of the country’s leading federal categories of economic immigration. 

The O.I.N.P has 03 streams of immigration that are associated with the Express Entry system — French-Speaking Skilled Worker, Human Capital Priorities, and Skilled Trades.

The streams provide the O.I.N.P to search the pool of  Express Entry for eligible applicants who satisfy their eligibility criteria and call them to appeal for a provincial nomination for PR.

The Stream of Human Capital Priorities was common of the 03, resulting in 2,190 nominations in the year 2018 — the maximum of any O.I.N.P immigration pathway.

The Skilled Trades Stream announced another 648 nominations and the Stream of French-Speaking Skilled Worker announced 387 nominations.

To be considered for any of the streams of Ontario’s Express Entry, eligible applicants must initially submit a profile in the Express Entry.

More Tech Nominations

Ontario published approximately 25 percent of nominations went to applicants citing work experience in technology-related jobs.

These professions included designers and software engineers, interactive media developers, computer programmers, technology consultants, and I.T systems analysts the O.I.N.P report states.

High Number of India-born nominees

Ontario province nominees recognized from 147 nations. Applicants born in India got a higher number of nominations than applicants born in any other nation. Totally 2,651 of the 6,850 nominations announced by Ontario went to immigration applicants who were born in India or approximately 39% of the whole nominations.

Applicants born in China got 1,424 nominations or approximately 21% of the whole nominations.
