A Guide to Immigrating to Ontario

The program has a total of five streams for potential candidates:

  • Foreign Worker Stream
  • International Student Stream
  • In-Demand Skills Stream
  • Masters Graduate Stream
  • Ph.D. Graduate Stream

For provincial immigration, OINP uses the Expression of Interest (EOI) system to identify potential applicants who match the criteria and standards for eligibility for the various immigration streams. Candidates are then sent an Invitation to Apply (ITA). However, receiving an invitation to apply (ITA) does not grant you automatic admission to one of the OINP streams. If you have an ITA to apply for Canada PR updates and you meet the requirements for the stream specified in your ITA, you can submit your application online. Once you receive the invitation to apply (ITA), you have to submit the PR application within 14 days.
