On January 10, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) conducted a new Targeted draw – inviting 404 candidates under the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker Stream.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is the province’s economic immigration program. Working in partnership with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the OINP is designed for foreign workers, international students, and others with the right skills, experience, and education to apply for an OINP nomination.

Here are the details of the latest Ontario PNP draw held on January 10.
