Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program: Corporate Stream

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program’s Corporate Stream helps and supports established international corporations looking to expand into Ontario or buy an existing business. Once your business has been successfully established, key staff are eligible to apply for nomination that could lead to permanent resident status.

OINP is now accepting complete applications to the Corporate Stream.

Are you eligible?

You may be eligible for this program if you have a viable business activity that will bring significant economic benefit to our province. If we approve your proposal, your key staff may apply for a temporary work permit in order to establish your business.

Your corporation and your key staff must meet all eligibility criteria in order to apply to the Corporate Stream, including:

  • Your corporation must invest a minimum of $5 million CDN in a new or existing business
  • Your corporation must create five full-time, permanent positions for Canadian citizens or permanent residents per key staff
  • Key staff seeking nomination must be currently employed with the corporation and be essential to the establishment, continued operation and success of the business in Ontario
  • Key staff must meet a minimum language requirement of Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB 5) level or equivalent in order to be nominated after your business has been established in Ontario

More information on the above criteria and other criteria you and your key staff must meet as well as the full application process and guidelines are available in the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program Corporate Stream Guide. Review this program guide carefully before you apply to ensure that you and your key staff meet all eligibility requirements and that you understand the application process.

Application forms for the Corporate Stream can be found here.
