Double Nominations for PR by 2022 for Ontario

Double nominations for PR by 2022 for Ontario

Province of Ontario is looking to nominate double the number of skilled immigrants for a provincial nomination for Canada permanent residence. From the current allocation of 6,650 nominations, Ontario wants to double it by 2022 – 13,300 nominations.

Ontario’s Immigration Minister – Vic Fedeli, has formally requested Marco Mendicino (Federal Immigration Minister) in a letter sent recently for the increment in allocations for the nominations.

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) allows the province to nominate fixed number economic class immigrants each year for Canada PR. Every year a fixed number of allocations are provided to the provinces that are set in accordance with programs’ annual admission targets that are established by the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

PNP’s admission target for 2019 was set at 61,000 new permanent residents that are an increase of 6,000 more than the previous year’s target of 55,000. 2020’s admission targets are set at 67,800.

In recent years, Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has been provided with the largest number of allocations among all the provinces and territories. In 2019, OINP has been given 6,650 nominations which are an increase of only 50 nominations from previous years. An additional 700 nominations were granted to Ontario last week that has brought the total allocations to 7,350.

In an email statement by Ontario to the CIC News, they have said that the allocations over the past years have fallen short of the actual requirements of the labour market. “Employers continue to express significant frustration that the limited number of nominations has hindered their efforts to hire foreign talent, which ultimately impacts the growth and sustainability of their businesses”. The letter that is sent to the federal immigration minister proposes “Collaborative development of a multi-year planning process”. Ontario has also expressed that they are exploring ways “to exercise greater autonomy and control over the selection of immigrants to the province.”

However, they do not share any plans on how the additional nominations will be distributed among the OINP’s nine existing streams or what percentage will be given to the three pathways that are aligned with the federal government’s Express Entry Program.

There was also no information provided on how the proposed Ontario Regional Immigration Pilot (scheduled to be launched in early 2020) will get the benefits of increased allocation. This pilot immigration program is to focus on attracting skilled immigrants to smaller communities in Ontario.

Mathieu Genest, Mendicino’s press secretary has said in a statement that “collaboration is central to IRCC’s approach to immigration levels planning, which provides for an additional 27,000 admissions through PNP over the coming years. We have consulted with provinces and territories to ensure that the levels plan meets their requirements to fill labour shortages and attract needed talent.”

The proposed Municipal Nominee Program for smaller municipalities was also pointed by Genest. Also, a new federal immigration pilot program will be held in bringing in additional immigrants to rural and remote communities in Canada’s western provinces and territories and Ontario.

Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program counts five Ontario communities among 11 taking part in a program that has an annual cap of 2,750 applicants in addition to their dependents.

Other than the province of Ontario, the Government of Saskatchewan has also asked for greater control over immigration in the province. Saskatchewan has set a population target of 1.4 million residents by 2030 and economic growth that could add 100,000 jobs over the same time period.

Quebec is the only province in Canada that has successfully negotiated a greater degree of control over immigration with the federal government. 1991 Canada-Quebec accord grants the province of Quebec full control over the selection of Economic-Class immigrants, in addition to other powers.
