About the employer job offer: international student component

The Ontario International Student Stream in the Employer Job Offer category is open to foreign nationals who have a qualifying job offer from an employer in Ontario.

You do not necessarily have to apply from within Canada, as long as you meet the eligibility requirements.

To be eligible, you must have completed a program at an approved educational institution in Canada, have a qualifying job offer in Ontario, and intend to immigrate to the province, among other criteria.

To receive an invitation to apply for this program, you must register an EOI profile on the Ontario website. Your profile will then go to the EOI pool and you will get a score based on the files you submit. Ontario awards points for human capital factors that the province says will indicate your ability to integrate into the workforce.

How do you get points for immigration to Ontario?

Ontario ranks EOI profiles based on a number of human capital factors that the province believes will be important in selecting immigrants with the potential to thrive. You get points for the skill level of your job posting as well as your work experience in Canada. The province uses the National Occupational Classification (NOC) system to assign points.

The OINP scoring system is different depending on the stream you are applying for. In addition to skill level and work experience, it also takes into account your salary, education, proficiency in official languages ​​and the region in which you study or work. The province also awards 10 points at its discretion to meet labor market needs.
