OINP PhD Student Stream Reopened2017-10-19
OINP reopened registration for the PhD graduate student stream beyond October 12 because they have not reached their annual application quota.The Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) gives qualified foreign nationals with specific education, skills and experience targeted by the province who are interested in Ontario immigration the opportunity to apply for Canadian permanent residence through an expedited process. The International PhD Graduate stream targets individuals who have graduated from a PhD (Doctoral) level program at an Ontario university, and who want to live and work in Ontario.
There are two ways to get nominated for ONIP:
- a potential immigrant can contact Immigration Ontario and apply to the OINP directly
- creating an Express Entry profile and registering their interest in the province within the system
Calgary immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah says that OINP student immigrants are highly desirable future residents of Ontario:
OINP Masters and PhD student applicants to become residents of Ontario have established themselves in the province through their studies, and often also through employment. International graduate students are ideal immigrant candidates to settle and integrate successfully into Ontario’s labour market and society. These highly educated and motivated immigrants to Ontario want to move to Ontario to work or build their business and help build a stronger Canada.
