Update for July 23 for the week of July 20July 23, 2020

Update: Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker Stream

On July 21, 2020, the OINP’s Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream successfully opened, and closed when the internal registration limit of 1300 was met. The stream is now closed and no additional registrations for this stream will be accepted.

Demand for the OINP is high, and Ontario continuously balances intake across its streams. This includes strategically managing application intake to ensure that the program is meeting the needs of employers and filling specific labour market gaps across Ontario.

The OINP will continue to monitor intake of applications across all streams to determine when the Masters Graduate, Employer Job Offer: International Student and Foreign Worker streams will reopen in 2020.

Please monitor this page for news, announcements and program developments.

Please note that the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker Stream has reached its registration intake limit. The stream is now closed and no additional registrations for this stream will be accepted until further notice.

Please monitor this page for news, announcements and program developments.

OINP now accepting applications to the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is now accepting applications to the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream.

Once the intake limit has been met, the system will automatically prevent further registrations from being submitted.

Due to the high volume of users accessing the e-Filing portal at time of opening, you may be placed in a priority queue. This is not a technical error

You must access the OINP e-Filing Portal directly from the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream page on the OINP website. Please click on the button ‘Submit an application’.

Important: New Employer Form required

In light of current economic and employment conditions and to ensure your application is processed in a timely manner, you must submit the most recent version of the Employer Form, which must be completed and dated no earlier than today’s date, July 21st, 2020. Although the Employer Form indicates that it must be submitted within six (6) months from the date of signing, it is very important at this time that the information contained in the Employer Form be current. Including an Employer Form completed and dated prior to today’s date will result in your application being returned as incomplete. Please note that if you successfully register, you will have 14 days to complete and submit the application. You will be able to use this time to upload an up-to-date Employer Form.

Please also be aware that the ‘Regulatory Compliance Information’ section B of the Employer Form has been revised to indicate whether the employer’s business is currently compliant (i.e. has no outstanding orders) under the Ontario Employment Standards Act 2000 and the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Carefully have your employer review the information listed in the Employer Form to respond accurately in order to avoid unnecessary delays in the processing of your application.

If you experience technical difficulties while using the OINP e-Filing Portal, please contact the OINP directly at: ontarionominee@ontario.ca and include a screen shot showing the time and date stamp, and include details about how the error occurred.
