Here’s a Guide to Immigrating to Ontario in 2023: Employer Job Offer Stream

Employer Job Offer’s Foreign Worker stream facilitates the recruitment of foreign workers with valid job offers from Ontario employers in order to address specific labor market needs.

OINP utilizes the Expression of Interest (EOI) system in order to determine which potential candidates meet the requirements and eligibility standards for this immigration stream.


Even, this latest draw highlights the OINP’s commitment to selecting candidates with the necessary skills, qualifications, and potential to succeed in Ontario’s dynamic economy. Once, it is done, an invitation to apply is issued to candidates.

An Invitation to Apply (ITA), however, does not automatically entitle you to one of the OINP streams. If you meet the requirements for the stream listed in your ITA and have obtained an ITA to apply for Canada PR updates, only then you may submit your application online.

After getting the invitation to apply, you have 14 days to submit your Canada PR application.
