The new Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program-OINP draw today sent out 772 invitations to apply for permanent residency (PR).
This was a general draw considering profiles with all the occupations under the Masters Graduate Stream.
Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles created with OINP between November 22, 2022, and August 30, 2023 with a score of 44 and above received the invitation.
Invited profiles will now have to submit their complete application within 14 calendar days of receiving the invitation to apply in the OINP draw today.
Just some advice: Rather than opting to buy LMIAs or run payrolls, international students in Canada looking for PR can proceed with a Masters program in one of the eligible universities, which will:
- improve their academics for better career prospects in the future,
- give them status to continue their stay in Canada as students, and
- also give them a much better shot at permanent residency.
There is no job offer needed for the OINP Masters Graduate Stream so it is good to spend your valuable money honing your career profile, rather than just buying job offers/LMIAs/payrolls.
