The Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP) regularly searches the IRCC’s Express Entry pool to find candidates who may meet the criteria of one of Ontario’s Express Entry immigration streams. The OINP collects individuals from the Express Entry Pool to personally invite them to live and work in Ontario.
Are you wondering when the next Ontario PNP Draw will be? Our best prediction is at least one month from the previous draw.
