The Masters Graduate stream of OINP allows International students who graduated from an eligible Ontario university to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence in Ontario.

OINP’s PhD Graduate stream gives international graduates with an Ontario PhD degree the opportunity to apply to permanently settle in Ontario, Canada.

Applicants must first register in the OINP’s Expression of Interest System (EOI) and receive an invitation to apply (ITA) before they can apply online to be nominated by Ontario for permanent residence.  Moreover, applicants must submit their application within two years of completing the requirements necessary to obtain their Masters or PhD degrees.
