Overview

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) regularly searches Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC) Express Entry pool to find candidates who may meet the criteria of one of Ontario’s Express Entry immigration streams.

If we identify you in the pool, you will receive a notification of interest in your Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada online account.

Note: Receiving a notification of interest does not mean that you qualify for one of our streams.

After you receive a notification of interest, you may submit an online application to the OINP if you qualify under the Ontario Express Entry stream for which your notification of interest was issued. You must submit your application within 45 calendar days of receiving the notification of interest.

Please note that not all applicants who meet Ontario’s stream criteria will receive a notification of interest.
