The Canadian province of Ontario has altered its registration system for five of its immigration streams that are the economic class in nature for the coming weeks. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is now being shifted to an Interest (EOI) system points-based system in place of their prior first-come-first-served model. This will rank candidates based on human capital and labor market factors.
Other Provincial nominee programs also use this kind of system to manage new people who have registered for Canadian immigration. The OINP will apply this EOI system to the following streams of interest:
- Employer Job Offer Category streams such as the Foreign Worker, International Student, and In-Demand Skills
- Masters Graduate stream
- D. Graduate stream
While the OINP is planning on implementing this system for candidates who want to migrate to Canada, it comes into effect when the new EOI system comes into force. The earlier system used to be operational like rushed seating. Ontario used to open their web portals to accept these registrations from people who wanted to immigrate to Canada via one of these Ontario PNP streams.
These EOI systems are mainly used for most of the Canada Provincial nominee programs. This EOI system needs the applicant to submit their resume and work experience, education, and any other information. For this, they are given a provincial score, and if they score well, they might be granted a provincial nomination for permanent residence in Canada.
In the fall of 2020, Ontario had already started receiving public consultations on the EOI system, which was proposed. Between September 9 and October 23, 2020, the province received about 250 feedback submissions. These submissions have come from individuals, prospective applicants, employers, immigration organizations and representatives, industry associations, and professional associations.
A spokesperson from OINP stated, “Many respondents believed that the proposed EOI system would be fairer and more predictable, and would be more user-friendly than the current intake process.”
