To make it easier to apply an Ontario Nomination under the French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has recently launched a new online application process. Now, rather than submitting a paper application to OINP, applicants must submit their applications through the OINP e-filing Portal using their One-key account. This new online process reduces the burden on applicants to provide original signatures and documents with their applications, and should lead to more transparency throughout the application process as well as faster processing times.

The OINP French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream is intended for skilled workers with strong English and French language skills who qualify for Express Entry under the Canadian Experience Class or Federal Skilled Worker Class. This program was created in support of the province of Ontario’s commitment to increase Francophone immigration to 5% of overall immigration to the province.

OINP may nominate candidates in the Express Entry pool for a Provincial Nomination under the French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream if they meet the following criteria:

  1. Minimum of language scores of CLB Level 7 in every category in French and CLB Level 6 in every category in English
  2. Work experience meeting the criteria of the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) or Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  3. Education equivalent to at least a Canadian Bachelor’s Degree
  4. Sufficient settlement funds
  5. Intention to reside in Ontario

My husband and I had great experience working with Border Law Firm from beginning to end. They answered all my questions and mention the best option First, to get my husband spousal open work permit approval and Second, to get my permanent residence. I am very thankful to Devika Ma'am and Jenny they give great and detailed advice on each part of your application. They were very professional and punctual at their response throughout the process.

Devika and John were excellent. They understood how this process would change my life and helped me get to the US. John was extremely kind and thorough. When my employer in the US ended up trying to take advantage of me, they helped me transfer my visa to a new employer and had so much empathy for my situation and now I have a job in California that makes me so happy while helping others. I am beyond grateful for their kindness and service. I will be using them for any changes to my status going forward.

Absolutely delighted with John from this firm with the way he counselled with suitable options available for me on migration to Canada, documentation submissions, query resolutions, visa processing and continued personal support and follow up until the last step. Would recommend this firm for anybody blindly looking for immigration help. They would guide you with complete transparency and professionalism.
