The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (“OINP”) has announced that they will be re-opening the following provincial nomination streams next week:

  • International PhD Graduate Stream
  • International Masters Graduate Stream
  • Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream

The OINP has also announced that they will be implementing a new online application system for the Provincial Nomination streams listed above. Application intake will be paused and reopened periodically in order to more efficiently process applications.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream received a higher than expected volume of applications in 2016. Applicants were initially given an estimated processing time of three months for PNP applications under the Human Capital Priorities Stream, however many applicants experienced processing times of up to one year. The introduction of an online application system, as well as periodic pauses to control intake volume indicates that the OINP is taking steps to improve processing times in 2017. Further details are to be announced February 21st 2017.

I and my family want to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to Devika, John and the team at Borders Law firm for assisting us with the PRTD application for my mother at a time when most processing was closed due to lockdowns. They also worked proactively with us to establish a good strategy with back up plans which gave us sufficient information and assurance. Very responsive and forthcoming with information. Proactive in processing but at the same time they put enough time in the application and the supporting details to have high quality of the application. As a result our application was processed in 1 go at a time when it was critical and sensitive time for the family. Thank you again.

Our biggest dilemma while researching for an Immigration Consultant was someone we could trust and that could manage our application well. We are so glad to have found Borders Law Firm. Devika gave us exceptional guidance due to which we got ICT Work Permit approval. Big thanks and appreciation for Jenny Mao for such professionalism and dexterity shown while handling our application. Kudos to BLF team for their superb work and simply for the trustworthiness they have ..… Best Wishes !
