Provincial Nomination (PNP)


Provincial Nomination Program


Ontario Immigration Nomination Program

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is the province’s economic immigration program. It works in partnership with the Government of Canada through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Foreign workers, international students and others with the right skills, experience and education apply to the OINP for a nomination.
The OINP recognizes and nominates people for permanent residence who have the skills and experience the Ontario economy needs, and the Government of Canada makes the final decision to approve applications for permanent residence.

Skilled workers

“Skilled workers” are persons whose jobs require a minimum of 2 years training or experience, not of a temporary or seasonal nature. The skilled worker must meet the educational, training, or experience requirements of the job opportunity. Relevant post-secondary education may be considered as training.



“Professionals” are persons whose job requires at least a U.S. baccalaureate or foreign equivalent degree and are a member of the professions.


Other workers

The “other workers” subcategory is for persons performing unskilled labor requiring less than 2 years training, education, or experience, not of a temporary or seasonal nature.


There are three ways you may qualify for a nomination

For workers who already have a permanent job offer from an Ontario employer

Assessment Rating

The program criteria can change at any time, but we’ll use what was on this website when we received your complete application.
To apply for this sub-category, you must submit an Expression of Interest. Candidates that are eligible and meet selection criteria will receive an invitation to submit an application. The points scores associated with an Expression of Interest profile will determine the likelihood of receiving an invitation. Those with high scores within the pool of candidates will have a greater chance of being invited to apply.
When you receive an Invitation to apply, you must pay a non-refundable $350 application fee online by Visa or MasterCard. It is the last step required in order to submit your complete application.

What is an International Skilled Worker Expression of Interest (EOI)?

An International Skilled Worker EOI is not an application to the SINP.
An International Skilled Worker EOI is a pre-application process which allows candidates to fill in an online form to indicate their interest in applying to the SINP and demonstrate their qualifications.
Not all candidates who submit an International Skilled Worker EOI will be invited to apply to the SINP. There are no limits on the number of candidates who can submit an EOI, however, candidates can only have one EOI profile.

Who can’t apply through International Skilled Worker Category: Occupation In-Demand?

You may not be eligible for nomination if any of the following situations is true:

You failed to submit documentation as requested by SINP;
You failed to establish that your intent to live and work in Saskatchewan is genuine; and,
You and or your representative have intentionally misrepresented yourselves in the application.
You must score a minimum of 60 points out of 100 points on the Point Assessment Grid to be considered for nomination.

You are awarded points on the basis of five factors:

Education and training;
Skilled work experience;
language ability;
And Connections to the Saskatchewan labour market and adaptability.
You must attach documents to support the information for the eligibility criteria and points factors. For example, if you claim 20 points for having a university degree, you must attach a copy of your university degree and complete transcripts. If your degree is printed in a language other than English or French, you must also attach a translated version.
