Nomination for permanent residence in Ontario City, Canada – Check how to be among the beneficial
The Ontario Immigrants Program (OINP) allows foreign workers, international students, and others with the appropriate skills, experience, and education to apply for a permanent residence permit in Ontario.
The OINP regional migration pilot project will help bridge the shortfall in local employment and support economic growth by spreading awareness of the program and increasing its absorption in rural and small communities.
About the pilot
The two-year trial version will start in early 2020. It will include:
- About 150 nominations were assigned under the Employer Job Category to applicants addressed to experimental communities
- Marketing and awareness-raising to raise awareness among local employers
Supporting business service for employers
- Partnership with stakeholders to take advantage of the influx of entrepreneurs to succeed in local businesses
Note that the Regional Pilot for Migration operates within the employer supply streams at OINP. There is no separate set of experimental criteria. If you qualify for any of the OINP employer job offer flows and your full-time job offer from an employer is located in a pilot community, you may be eligible for the trial version.
The goal of the pilot
The goal is to attract highly-skilled immigrants to rural and small communities in Ontario to fill local labor market gaps and help spread the benefits of economic migration across the province.
The results of the experiment will enrich the future policies of the OINP program, including future structuring efforts.

If you are an OINP applicant, you may want to explore opportunities to move to or work in partner communities.
