Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP), a popular immigration program for foreign workers, international students and others with skills, education and experience, would be going under some changes under the Ontario Immigration Act, to be more responsive to the labour market needs. 

 

The OINP is the province’s economic immigration program, which works through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in partnership with the Government of Canada. This immigration program nominates people with the right skills and experience for permanent residence, and the Government of Canada does the final decision for approving the applications.  

 

As per the latest updates, amendments are proposed to bring some changes in the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program, under the Ontario Immigration Act, 2015. This immigration act is the regulatory framework governing Ontario to carry the responsibilities related to immigration. 

 

Amendments would be made for the selection criteria for the employer job offer, for various categories listed below, established under certificate of nomination under Ontario Regulation 421/17.    

• Foreign Worker stream - Foreign worker with a job offer category

• International Student stream - International student with a job offer category

• In-Demand Skills stream - In-demand skills category

 

Amendments to In-Demand Skills: 

1. To add 13 new manufacturing related employment positions located outside of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) only, on National Occupational Classification (NOC) codes. The objective of In-demand Skills stream is to support the employers facing shortages in specific occupations category – agriculture, construction and other occupations that requires low to semi-skills, which includes:

• 9537 Other products assemblers, finishers and inspectors

• 9417 Machining tool operators

• 9536 Industrial painters, coaters and metal finishing process operators

• 9422 Plastics processing machine operators

• 9446 Industrial sewing machine operators

• 9416 Metalworking and forging machine operators

• 9411 Machine operators, mineral and metal processing

• 9421 Chemical plant machine operators

• 9523 Electronics assemblers, fabricators, inspectors and testers

• 9461 Process control and machine operators, food, beverage and associated products processing

• 9437 Woodworking machine operators

• 9418 Other metal products machine operators

• 9526 Mechanical assemblers and inspectors

 

2. Remove the settlement funds requirement.

 

Amendments to International Student and Foreign Worker streams (Employer Job Offer):

To be proportional to the size of the employer’s workforce by limiting the approval of number of applications for submission in a calendar year. (These changes will however not be applied to the In-Demand Skills stream.)

• Employment position within the GTA - 1 application per 5 existing permanent and full-time employees

• Employment position outside the GTA - 1 application per 3 existing permanent and full-time employees

 

With these changes, single workplace will not have uneven distribution of number of foreign workers.    Since the manufacturing sector outside GTA does not receive significant levels of immigration, and the settlement funds are usually met through annual earnings of the applicant's job offer, the amendments are being made to be inline with the In-Demand stream.

 

Let’s have a positive outlook since more jobs in the NOC codes means more opportunities for the immigrants who want to be nominated in the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program.
