The targeted draws of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invited 417 candidates through its French-speaking Skilled Worker stream on June 5, 2023.
The OINP draw was the year’s second draw targeting French-speaking Skilled Workers. Ontario issues Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to selected candidates inviting them to apply for provincial nomination. The weekly OINP draws aim to meet Ontario’s economic and labor market needs.
