How many days the paper-based OINP streams have been open in 2020?


In the report about the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) in 2020, the government provided the data on how many days per year the paper-based streams of the OINP accepted applications. Masters Graduate Stream opened only once for one day. Employer Job Offer: International Student and Foreign Worker Streams, were open for three days in total.

  • Employer Job Offer: International Student Stream – 3 days
  • Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills Stream – 320 days
  • Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker Stream – 3 days
  • Ph.D. Graduate Stream – 365 days
  • Masters Graduate Stream – 1 day
  • Entrepreneur Stream – 365 days

Such enormous agiotage is one of the reasons to introduce the upcoming Expression of Interest system, that will implement a points-based selection process, which will allow avoiding the problems with those streams in the past.
