What is OINP Express Entry Notifications of Interest

Who can apply for OINP

OINP Updates. The Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP) regularly searches Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCCExpress Entry pool to find candidates who may meet the criteria of one of Ontario’s Express Entry immigration streams. The federal Express Entry Program allows Canada to actively recruit assess and select skilled immigrants under the following federal economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Class; the Federal Skilled Trades Class; and the Canadian Experience Class.

If OINP identifies you in the pool, you will receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) in your IRCC online account.

Note: Receiving an NOI does not mean that you qualify for one of our streams.

After you receive an NOI, you may submit an online application to the OINP if you qualify under one of Ontario’s Express Entry streams. You must submit your application within 45 calendar days of receiving your NOI.

Please note that not all applicants who meet Ontario’s stream criteria will receive a NOI.
