Ontario Employer Job Offer stream: International Student program received its registration limit of 1,250 when an application window opened on Wednesday.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) stream opened and closed in just a matter of 25 minutes on the morning of August 19.
“Demand for the OINP is very high, and Ontario consistently balances intake across its streams,” an OINP statement said.
“This includes cleverly managing application intake to ensure that the program is meeting the requirements of employers and filling specific labor market gaps across Ontario.”
Due to the current situation concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, Ontario required each application to be lodged with the most recent version of the Employer Form completed and dated Aug. 19, 2020.
This was to ensure all the documents and information contained on the form are current.
The Ontario Employer Job Offer category is targetted at candidates who have a job offer from an Ontario employer.
For the International Student Stream, candidates are required to have completed studies from a publicly-funded Canadian post-secondary institution.

The Ontario immigration department says interested candidates should access the OINP e-Filing Portal directly from the Employer Job Offer: International Student Stream webpage on the OINP website.
