How To Apply
This section covers the immigration process. It also points you to the forms you will need to fill out.
Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP)
Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (formerly Opportunities Ontario: Provincial Nominee Program) launched in 2009.
Ontario employers can nominate key individuals with critical skills and expertise for work permits and permanent residence in Canada through Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program. This is helpful for employers who are having difficulty finding the skilled workers they need.
Please note that Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program is employer-driven. This means that you can only apply if your employer is pre-screened, the position is approved, and your employer provides you with a nominee application package from Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program.
Immigrating to Canada
If you want to immigrate to Ontario as a permanent resident under the federal immigration program, you must first apply with the Government of Canada. The same is true if you want to work or study here temporarily. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is responsible for these programs.
Workplace Health & Safety
You have the right to know about workplace hazards, participate in solving workplace health and safety issues, and refuse work you believe is unsafe.
