Both options go through the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP).
The government of Ontario can nominate eligible postgraduates who want to settle in the province.
Ontario has become a popular destination for international postgraduates because of the high-quality education and research opportunities—and opportunities for employment.
Ontario has not yet announced the number of applications that will be available, or how long the intake period will last.
Applicants to either program do not need to have a job offer, nor do they need to live in Ontario when they apply. They do need to submit their applications within two years of earning the degree, intend to live in Ontario, and have appropriate legal status, such as a study permit, work permit, or visitor record.
