Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program: Human Capital Priorities Stream

This stream enables the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) to nominate individuals who have qualified for Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s (CIC’s) Express Entry pool and who have the required education, skilled work experience, language ability, and other characteristics to help them successfully establish and integrate into Ontario’s labour market and communities.

How does the Stream work?


You may not apply to OINP under the Human Capital Priorities Stream if:

  • You have not received a PT Notification of Interest from Ontario through your MyCIC account;
  • You are a refugee claimant in Canada; OR
  • You were not accepted into the Express Entry pool.

Important Deadline:

Your application must be received by the OINP within 45 calendar days from the date the Notification of Interest (NOI) letter was issued to you. Applications received outside the 45 calendar day period will be returned and will not be processed.

Note: If you receive and accept an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from CIC or a nomination from another province or territory after you have already applied to OINP, your application fee to OINP will not be refunded. Application fees are non-refundable even if an application is withdrawn or denied, as they cover OINP’s cost of processing applications

Please see the Human Capital Priorities Stream Application Guide for more details.
