OINP paused the intake for the In-Demand Skills and Ph.D. Graduate streams
Following the upcoming introduction of the new Expression of Interest (EOI) system to manage five streams of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP), on March 16, 2021, the province paused the intake for the Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills and Ph.D. Graduate streams. Throughout the year, those two OINP streams always remained open but now the government temporarily closed those streams to adjust them to the points-based EOI system. In 2019, OINP nominated 19 candidates in the In-Demand Skills and 234 in the Ph.D. Graduate stream. The data for 2020 is yet to be published.
