Apply Online

Before submitting an application:

  • You may not apply directly to the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) under Ontario's Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream. You must have received a Notification of Interest (NOI) from Ontario through your IRCC online account before you can apply to OINP under this stream.
  • You must submit your online application to the OINP within 45 calendar days from the date the NOI letter was issued to you. Applications submitted outside the 45 calendar day period will not be processed.
  • You should gather all relevant paper work and supporting documentation required for your application. Ensure that any document that is not in English or French has been translated and certified, and notarized if required. 

Filling out an online application will take up to two hours to complete.  Once you begin, you can save your progress and complete the application at a later time.

The application fee is $1,500. The fee covers the cost of processing your application and is non-refundable once you submit your application. Your fee must be paid online by credit card only (VISA or MasterCard) before your application can be submitted.

Note: If you receive and accept an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from IRCC or a nomination from another province or territory after you have already applied to OINP, your application fee to OINP will not be refunded.  Application fees are non-refundable even if an application is withdrawn or refused, as they cover OINP’s cost of processing applications.

For more information about completing the online application and all required supporting documents, please refer to the Human Capital Priorities Stream Application Guide and the registration instructions for the OINP e-Filing Portal.

To help ensure the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program’s (OINP) e-filing system can accommodate high volumes of users, changes are being made to the online application process.

Using a Representative

If you plan to authorize a representative to complete your online application, your representative must first register for a ONe-key account. They must also register as a representative. For more information on authorizing a representative, please refer to the Human Capital Priorities Stream Application Guide.

Please note: You must have a Notification of Interest from Ontario to apply to Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream.
