Latest OINP Draws 2022 (Ontario PNP)

By Ella Bergquist January 9, 2020 (Updated December 30, 2022) 6 min. read
OINP January 9 Draw

The Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP) regularly searches the IRCC’s Express Entry pool to find candidates who may meet the criteria of one of Ontario’s Express Entry immigration streams. The OINP collects individuals from the Express Entry Pool to personally invite them to live and work in Ontario. Some Ontario PNP streams use a CRS Score to help select candidates, where you must reach a certain CRS score in order to successfully immigrate through that specific stream.

Are you curious about your CRS score? Use our CRS score calculator and learn how you can improve your CRS score.

Are you wondering when the next Ontario PNP Draw will be? Our best prediction is at least one month from the previous draw.

Learn more about how the OINP process and application.

Entrepreneur Stream – Invitations to Apply issued

On April 22, 2020 the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) issued 26 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) under the Entrepreneur Stream (OINP:ES). Expressions of Interest (EOIs) received and scored by the OINP:ES between November 22, 2019 and April 17, 2020 were eligible for consideration for this ITA Round. ITAs were issued for EOIs that received a score of between 132 and 200.

If you received an ITA, you do not need to contact the program. You will receive two emails containing login information and instructions for submitting an application.

If you received a notice that your EOI was eligible to receive an ITA but did not receive an ITA this round, the EOI scored below 132. An EOI remains eligible to receive an ITA for 12 months from the date it was submitted to the OINP.

March 4, 2020, Ontario PNP Update

Update: Employer Job Offer: International Student and Foreign Worker Streams

The OINP received 1322 successful registrations during the March 3rd opening of the Employer Job Offer: International Student and Foreign Worker streams.

Individuals who successfully completed registration and received a file number have 14 days to submit an application.

The OINP will continue to monitor intake of applications across all streams to determine when the Employer Job Offer: International Student and Foreign Worker streams will reopen in 2020.

March 3, 2020, Ontario PNP Update

OINP now accepting applications to the Employer Job Offer: International Student Stream

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is now accepting applications to the Employer Job Offer: International Student Stream.

Once the intake limit has been met, the system will automatically prevent further registrations from being submitted. Should the limit be met outside regular business hours, a notice will be posted on this page the next business day.

January 16, 2020, Ontario PNP Update

Ontario has introduced minor proposed changes to this stream.

The following amendments to the OINP stream criteria are proposed:

• Introduce limits on the number of applications for approval of an employment position that can be submitted in a calendar year that is proportional to the size of the employer’s workforce, as follows:

1 application per 5 existing permanent and full-time employees (employment position within the GTA)

1 application per 3 existing permanent and full-time employees (employment position outside the GTA)

Express Entry French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream – Invitations to Apply Issued

On January 9, 2020 the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) issued Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to candidates who may qualify for Ontario’s Express Entry French-Speaking Skilled Worker stream.

To manage demand, NOIs were issued to candidates who had a Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS) between 433 and 472.


Once Ontario finds candidates they want, the individual will receive a Notification of Interest (NOI). After one has received an NOI, they will have to submit their application to the OINP if they qualify for one of Ontario’s Express Entry streams. Learn more about the Ontario PNP program: OINP (Ontario Immigration Nominee Program).

Our experience with the team at VisaPlace has been absolutely amazing. Special thank you to Nadia Bakhtiari whom we had the pleasure of partnering with. Nadia was attentive, empathetic, knowledgeable, professional, friendly and accessible. She provided guidance and kept us in the loop every step of the way. We were so impressed with the professionalism and exceptional client experience from VisaPlace that we partnered with them for both our PR application and our citizenship application. Thank you VisaPlace and thank you Nadia!

We were switched legal teams 3 times within our time there.( This was not our doing) We weren’t impressed at all with the service almost all the way through our experience. Our review would have been 1 star. The response time was awful. To get in contact with our attorney was so difficult. And not thorough. Almost at the end, when we were almost ready to file, we got switched again, but this time, we are thankful. The attorney we got then was Andrew Diamond. He is fantastic and the reason for the 5 star rating. This is his rating. He was phenomenal. Absolutely amazing and prompt with response time and very knowledgeable, thorough and so helpful. We couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you Andrew for all you did for us!

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Applying for my E2 Visa was so overwhelming for me. As soon as I engaged VisaPlace all that worry and stress was gone. They guided me through the entire process and set me up for success! I would 100% recommend using them for any of your Visa Needs.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!

Had a great experience working with the people at VisaPlace for a Permanent Residency application! The team I dealt with (Nadia B., Krisztina T., Mansi S.) was extremely knowledgeable, prompt and handled the case with care. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone in need!
