Real story published September 29 at 14:52 GMT:
Today, September 29, Ontario is opening applications to applicants who have graduated with a master’s degree.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) will be opening applications to the Masters Graduate stream. International students who graduated from an Ontario university might be qualified to give an application for this Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
The OINP didn’t said precisely when the applications would open in the media release. Nonetheless, they said that interested candidates must access the OINP e-Filing Portal straight from the Masters Graduate stream page. Click on “Present an application” utilizing a desktop computer as mobile phones and tablets are not helped by the system.
The OINP anticipates that an important number of clients will apply, which may cause individuals to see a high-volume message page or be put in a priority row. This is not a technical mistake, and it isn’t important to contact the program.
The system will automatically close down when the intake limit has been complete.
The individuals who successfully enroll during the opening window will get an affirmation email from the OINP portal inside three business days, which will contain the enrolltrant’s file number. Enrolltrants will at that point have 14 days to present the application for the PNP.
It takes around two hours to complete the application, and it doesn’t need to be done all in one go. It is feasible to secure work and come back later.
It costs $1,500 to give an application and the OINP acknowledges Visa and Mastercard. All supporting documents should be in English or French, scanned and prepared to upload when registrants are filling out the application.
The right structure to enter a date of birth is DD/MM/YYYY. The OINP says that it is “essential the information is entered accurately” as they don’t approve complete changes to date of birth.
Who is qualified for the Masters Graduate stream?
No employment offer is required to apply for this PNP, nor is it important to be in Canada at the time of the application. Qualified applicants have to have fulfilled the necessities for a master’s degree from an qualified Ontario learning foundation.
A few of the other basic eligibility standards include:
- English or French language skills that are at minimum a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of seven in all capability;
- candidates must have lived in Ontario for at minimum one year;
- settlement funds calculated on family size and yearly income;
- aim to live in Ontario; and
- other qualification standard
The Masters Graduate stream is one of the programs that will be moving to an Expression of Interest system. The process going from a first-come-first-served application system starts with public discussion. Ontario anticipates the new system will be set up in 2021.
