Anyone who receives an NOI through the Human Capital Priorities Stream now has 45 calendar days to submit their application online for the provincial nomination.

Ontario’s two other Express Entry-aligned streams, the Express Entry French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream and the Express Entry Skilled Trades Stream, have also opened and will be issuing NOIs.

Five other OINP streams are also now accepting applications. They are:

  • Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker Stream
  • Employer Job Offer: International Student Stream
  • Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills Stream
  • Corporate Stream
  • Entrepreneur Stream
