What is Ontario Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker Stream?

You can create a profile with OINP if you have

  • A full-time (1,560 hours/year and at least 30 hours/week) job offer without any ending date, in NOC O, A, or B skill levels in Ontario.
    • The pay of the job offered must meet or be higher than the median wage level, for that occupation, in the specific region of Ontario where you will be working. Click here to check median wage.
  • At least two years of cumulative paid full-time work experience (or the equivalent in paid part-time work) in the same occupation as your job offer.
    • You do not need this two years of work experience, if your job offer is for an occupation that requires a mandatory licence or authorization, but you must hold a valid licence or authorization.
  • Intention to live in Ontario after you’ve been granted permanent residence. 
  • Legally lived in Ontario for at least one year in the past two years before you apply.
