More about Express Entry Notifications of Interest
Ontario partners with the Canadian government’s Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to operate an economic immigration program to meet the labor market needs. Candidates, including international students and foreign workers, can apply to the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) if they have the skills, work experience, and education credentials.
Ontario looks for candidates within the Express Entry pool qualifying any of its Express Entry immigration streams. These candidates receive a Notification of Interest in their IRCC online account. They should submit an online application within 45 days of receiving the Notification of Interest to the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program.
