July 9, 2020: The pilot will allow employers in the pilot communities to leverage the OINP to target skilled labour that is not available locally. The pilot is not intended to overlap with local efforts to employ workers who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents who may have been laid off as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Applicants to the Regional Immigration Pilot must:
- Have a full-time and permanent job offer from an employer located in one of the pilot communities (Chatham-Kent, Cornwall or Quinte West/Belleville), and
- Meet the criteria for one of the streams under the OINP’s Employer Job Offer category (criteria can be found on the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program webpage).
To apply for the pilot, applicants must complete an intake form and submit the form by email to [email protected].
To access the intake form please follow the link on the Regional Immigration Pilot webpage.
When submitting the intake form, applicants must complete the form in its entirety as incomplete forms will not be accepted.
Note to applicants: Submission of the Regional Immigration Pilot intake form does not mean you have a completed application for the OINP. If all the information in your completed form is confirmed as accurate, you will receive further notification on how to submit an application to theOINP Employer Job Offer category.
