Ontario likely moving to an Expression of Interest system
Proposed changes would allow the OINP to manage admissions more strategically, increase its labour market responsiveness, and better meet the needs of the regional labour market, Ontario says.
Ontario has released details of planned changes for the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program.
The proposed Modification would Present an Expression of Interest (EOI) system for the next Present streams of This Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP):
♦ Employer Job Offer Category: Foreign Worker
♦ Employer Job Offer Category: International Student
♦ Employer Job Offer Category: In-Demand Skills
♦ Masters Graduate
♦ Ph.D. Graduate
As a first step, OINP applicants will be encouraged to submit a profile into the program’s new EOI system, which will place them in a pool. Next, people will be requested to provide personal and other labour market and human capital information, where a possible Invitation to Apply (ITA) will be established.
According to the proposal put forward by Ontario, applicants will be ranked based on the information provided within their EOI. Ontario will review the dozens and problem ITAs to pick registrants. People who get an ITA will then be able to apply to be nominated under the OINP stream.
Ontario’s proposed EOI application process is very similar to that used under the national Express Entry platform in addition to EOI systems found under the PNP in other states.
The Express Entry program retains regular invitation rounds, usually, one every 2 weeks, also has invited 69,950 immigration candidates to apply for permanent residence in Canada to date this season.The same as in Ontario, eligible applicants at the three immigration applications managed by Express Entry are issued a dent below a ranking system, which awards points for factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French.
Ontario also stated it will be running general and targeted publishing and draws EOI stage allocations on their website.Ontario said the suggested changes are supposed”to strategically manage ingestion, increase the OINP’s labour market responsiveness and better react to regional labour market needs.”
Before, some of the five flows of the OINP have been affected by issues in the receipt of applications. Most recently, the Employer’s job offer: International pupil stream opened only a few minutes before reaching its capability and then shut again. Back in July, The Employer Job Supply: Foreign Worker flow also attained its registration limit just hours after launching.
This”first come, first served” approach has attracted much criticism on the grounds that it puts those who do not have easy access to high-speed internet during choice sessions at a disadvantage.
All suggested changes would only go into effect following a 45-day public consultation period that ends October 23, 2020.
