New Expression of Interest System in Ontario

 The long despised first-come first-served system for the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is no more for five popular provincial nominee programs. On March 15, 2021 the Ontario Government announced that they would be moving to an Expression of Interest (EOI) based system for several types of provincial nomination applications. Ontario joins several other provinces that have already adopted this system including Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan. It is simply a better way to control immigration application intake. The new system has been long awaited by many and will make OINP-PNP programs much less frustrating for all. 

This is very good news especially for foreigners who qualify for the Employer Job Offer, Masters Graduate, or Ph.D. Graduate streams. There will be no more sitting at your computer and waiting for that link to be enabled and hoping to get a chance to submit your application online. Especially since these 5 streams made up 57% of the provincial nominations issued in 2020.

What streams are available for the new EOI?

The Expression of Interest system is open for 5 streams. Three in the Employment Job Offer Category: Foreign Worker, International Student and In-Demand Skills. The other two are the Masters Graduate Stream and the Ph.D. Graduate Stream. The Foreign Worker, International Student, and Masters Graduate streams are the most popular streams for the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program. These programs opened and closed very quickly in 2020. The International Student and Foreign Worker streams of the Job Offer Category were open for 3 days while the Masters Graduate steam was only open for 1 day. 

The new EOI system means that you no longer have to wait and hope for the program to open only to close again very quickly. Which means now anyone who qualifies for these will have a much much better chance at applying for PR through these programs. You will be rated based on your qualifications rather than your ability to be at your computer at the right time. 

What is an Expression of Interest system?

An Expression of Interest system is a merit based using points. Points are given to you based on several factors such as level of education, Canadian experience, job offer, English or French  language proficiency to name a few. The total number of points you gain will determine your eligibility to enter a pool with other potential applicants. Then periodically throughout a calendar year the Government of Ontario will invite a specific number of applicants to submit a permanent resident application. Typically the government will invite applicants with the highest points total.

In other words the more requirements you meet the better your score. The higher your score the more likely you are to be chosen to submit your PR application. You can submit your interest to become a permanent resident any time, and know that you are in the pool to be considered.

An Expression of Interest application is not a permanent resident application. It is an application that expresses your desire and states your qualifications for permanent residence. You can only submit a permanent resident application if you receive an invitation to apply.

Basically it gives the government a better way to control application intake, and It ensures that all applicants can meet the basic minimum requirements for a permanent resident application. It also makes sure that the people who are the most qualified or have the highest points total are able to apply for permanent residence.

What are the benefits?

The major benefit is increased fairness for all applicants. EOI systems are primarily based on human capital and labour market factors. This means that people who have excellent skills and people who have the ability to work in areas of the economy with labour shortages will be given priority. 

There is no more need to wait and hope for the programs to open. You can submit your Expression of Interest and get into the pool of applicants at any time. You can do it now when it is convenient for you or as soon as you qualify. The province will draw the best applicants from the pool periodically, so as long as you are in the pool you will be given consideration.

Your Expression of Interest application will stay in the pool until you decide to withdraw. This means that if you are in the pool and a draw occurs and you are not invited to apply then you will remain in the pool for consideration until the next. 

This will be a much less stressful and more reliable system. There have been cases where a stream opens for 45 minutes, then closes due to technical issues when too many people try to access the OINP website. Only for this to happen all over again. It’s hard to know if everything has been submitted when dealing with website problems. For some people it can take away an entire day of waiting and hoping.

What should I do now?

If you want to take advantage of this new change then you should get all of your documents ready. Start planning today, and avoid application delays. You never know when the Government of Ontario will make a draw. It may or may not be announced.

If you don’t know where to start and need help creating your own custom immigration plan let our Immigration Consultants help you. We provide a wide variety of immigration services and can help you prepare, check or submit any immigration applications you have. Our goal is to help you with what you need.

Minister Mendicino launches plan to accelerate caregiver application processing

 

Six thousand caregiver applications will be prioritized by the end of 2021; 1,500 by June 30, 2021

April 15, 2021—Ottawa—Caregivers from abroad play an important role in supporting Canadian families who are unable to find the care they need for a family member in Canada. The global COVID-19 pandemic has caused great disruption to life in Canada and around the world, including to application processing at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). We recognize that many caregivers working in Canada are waiting anxiously to be reunited with their loved ones, and they need their applications to be processed for that to happen.

That is why IRCC is working to overcome the pandemic-related roadblocks that have interfered with processing applications from caregivers and their families by announcing a processing plan for 2021.

As part of this plan, IRCC will

  • finalize permanent residence applications for up to 6,000 caregivers who have completed their in-Canada work experience and their immediate family members, by December 31, 2021
  • make at least 1,500 first-stage decisions on applications for the Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker pilots by June 30, 2021
    • Prioritization of these decisions will allow more caregiver work permits to be issued for those who have valid job offers to work for families in Canada.
  • increase the digitization of caregiver applications
  • ensure applicants receive acknowledgement of receipt letters by May 31, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed significant challenges for application processing, particularly for paper-based applications. With reduced capacity and office closures resulting in more employees working remotely, in 2020 IRCC only entered as many mailed-in applications as was possible into our case management system. As a result, a new public policy is being issued so that IRCC can process applications in 2021 that were received in 2020.

The Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker pilots were launched in 2019. They feature a clear transition for caregivers from temporary to permanent status, as well as occupation-specific, rather than employer-specific, work permits. They also provide the opportunity for caregivers and their families to move to Canada as they gain work experience. The response to these pilots suggests these features are attractive to caregivers and the Canadian families who need in-home care for a family member.

Quotes

“The pandemic disrupted people’s lives in Canada and around the world, and Canada’s immigration processes were no exception. Immigrant caregivers, who take care of our families and elders, are often separated from their own families, and the pandemic has significantly slowed down permanent residence application processing, keeping them apart from their families longer than we would have hoped. With today’s announcement, we’re getting caregiver immigration back on track which will help reunite front-line heroes with their loved ones.”

– The Honourable Marco E. L. Mendicino, P.C., M.P., Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship

Quick facts

  • The new public policy will take effect on May 3, 2021. Applicants to the Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker pilots in 2020 will not need to reapply.

  • As of March 3, 2021, there were applications for about 12,000 caregivers and their accompanying family members in the processing inventory. This includes applications to both the Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker pilots, but also cases that we continue to finalize from caregiver programs of the past.

  • As of April 8, 2021, an estimated 2,367 applications have been received for the Home Child Care Provider Pilot, representing about 86% of the number of applications that can be accepted for 2021. For the Home Support Worker Pilot, an estimated 516 applications have been received, representing about 19% of the number of applications that can be accepted in 2021.

  • Nearly 2,900 caregivers and their family members became permanent residents in 2020.

  • Caregivers who are already in Canada could also have the opportunity to apply for permanent residence through the recently announced creation of a permanent residence pathway for essential workers.

New pathway to permanent residency for over 90,000 essential temporary workers and international graduates.

 April 14, 2021—Ottawa—Today, the Honourable Marco E. L. Mendicino, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, announced an innovative pathway to permanent residence for over 90,000 essential workers and international graduates who are actively contributing to Canada’s economy.

These special public policies will grant permanent status to temporary workers and international graduates who are already in Canada and who possess the skills and experience we need to fight the pandemic and accelerate our economic recovery.

The focus of this new pathway will be on temporary workers employed in our hospitals and long-term care homes and on the frontlines of other essential sectors, as well as international graduates who are driving the economy of tomorrow.

To be eligible, workers must have at least 1 year of Canadian work experience in a health-care profession or another pre-approved essential occupation. International graduates must have completed an eligible Canadian post-secondary program within the last 4 years, and no earlier than January 2017.

Effective May 6, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will begin accepting applications under the following 3 streams:

  • 20,000 applications for temporary workers in health care
  • 30,000 applications for temporary workers in other selected essential occupations
  • 40,000 applications for international students who graduated from a Canadian institution

The streams will remain open until November 5, 2021, or until they have reached their limit. Up to 90,000 new permanent residents will be admitted under these 3 streams.    

To promote Canada’s official languages, 3 additional streams with no intake caps have also been launched for French-speaking or bilingual candidates. Communities across Canada benefit from French-speaking and bilingual newcomers, and this pathway will contribute to the vitality of these Francophone minority communities.

A detailed explanation of all eligibility requirements is available within the public policies.

As we continue the fight against the pandemic, immigration will remain critical to our economic recovery by addressing labour shortages and adding growth to our workforce.

With an accelerated pathway to permanent residency, these special public policies will encourage essential temporary workers and international graduates to put down roots in Canada and help us retain the talented workers we need, particularly in our health-care system.

Today’s announcement will help us achieve our 2021 Immigration Levels Plan, which will see Canada welcome 401,000 new permanent residents. The skilled newcomers and international graduates welcomed under our plan will help create jobs and drive long-term growth in Canada. 

Eligible occupations in Healthcare:

Essential occupations

Workers will need to have at least one year of Canadian work experience in an eligible occupation, be currently employed in Canada, and intend to reside outside the province of Quebec. As well, workers must demonstrate English- or French-language proficiency equal to or higher than Canadian Language Benchmark of Level 4 (CLB 4), a lower threshold than most other economic Canadian immigration programs. Notably, French-language speakers will be eligible to apply through their own distinct pathways — identical in every way, but exempt from the quotas.

International graduates from Canadian post-secondary schools will be able to apply through a new pathway that will accept 40,000 applicants. To be eligible, international students must have graduated from a Canadian university or college within the four years prior to applying (not having graduated before January, 2017). Applicants must be currently employed in Canada and intend to reside outside the province of Quebec.

International students will need to demonstrate English- or French-language proficiency equal to or higher than Canadian Language Benchmark of Level 5 (CLB 5). Notably, French-language speakers will be eligible to apply through their own distinct pathway — identical in every way, but exempt from the quota.
