Update: Employer Job Offer: International Student stream

Update: Employer Job Offer: International Student stream

The Employer Job Offer: International Student stream opening has been paused due to technical issues and will not reopen today.

The OINP is investigating the cause of the technical issues.

Employer Job Offer: International Student stream is now open

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program is now accepting applications to the Employer Job Offer: International Student stream. All applicants must have a current job offer and up-to-date employer form.

Due to the significant number of users expected to access the system, you may encounter a high-volume message page or be placed in a priority queue. If this occurs, it is not a technical error and you don’t need to contact the program.

Once the intake limit has been met, the system will automatically prevent further registrations from being submitted.

You must access the OINP e-Filing Portal directly from the Employer Job Offer: International Student stream page on the OINP website. Please click on the button ‘Submit an application’. Mobile devices, such as cell phones and tablets, are not supported by the e-Filing system.

During registration, please pay careful attention when entering your date of birth. The correct format in the e-Filing Portal is DD/MM/YYYY. The OINP does not accept requests to completely change a name or date of birth, therefore it is imperative the information is entered correctly.

If you experience technical difficulties while using the OINP e-Filing portal, please contact the OINP directly at: ontarionominee@ontario.ca and include a screenshot showing the time and date stamp, and include details about how the error occurred.

Important: Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream not open

Please be advised that the OINP is not accepting applications to the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream today. During the opening of the Employer Job Offer: International Student stream, the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream registration link will be active, but for technical and testing purposes only.

Any registrations for the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream submitted today will be removed by the OINP.

Note that this is also not a Masters Graduate stream opening.

Important: Current job offer and up-to-date employer form required

Your job offer must be current when you apply. New applications will not be held pending a potential recall/return to work date. As part of your application you must provide all required supporting documents, including an up-to-date job offer with a definitive and imminent start date.

To ensure your application is processed in a timely manner, you must submit the most recent version of the employer form, which must be completed and dated no earlier than November 26, 2020. Although the employer form indicates that it must be submitted within six (6) months from the date of signing, it is very important that the information contained in the employer form is current. Including an employer form completed and dated prior to November 26, 2020 or failing to provide a current job offer will result in your application being returned as incomplete. Please note that if you successfully register, you will have 14 days to complete and submit the application. You will be able to use this time to upload an up-to-date employer form. Extensions to this 14-day period will not be provided.

Please also be aware the ‘Regulatory Compliance Information’ section B of the employer form has been revised to indicate whether the employer’s business is currently compliant (i.e. has no outstanding orders) under the Ontario Employment Standards Act, 2000 and the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Carefully have your employer review the information listed in the employer form to respond accurately in order to avoid unnecessary delays in processing your application.

Important: eligible one-year programs of study

For your application to be approved under the Job Offer: International Student stream, you must have received from an eligible Canadian institution one of the following:

  • a degree or diploma that takes at least two years to complete if you study on a full-time basis, or
  • a degree, diploma or certificate that takes at least one year to complete if you study on a full-time basis and that requires a completed degree as an admission requirement.

This means that in order to be eligible, your one-year program must require a completed degree as an admission requirement. One-year programs are ineligible if they require “a degree or a diploma”, or “a degree or work experience”, or similar, regardless of whether you personally completed a degree program prior to being accepted into the one-year program.

You must also have completed more than half of your studies while living and studying in Canada.
