How will Ontario immigration plan out in the future?

If you were looking to apply for Ontario immigration through the base Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), then from now on, you can register an EOI profile


After you have registered, your profile will enter into a selection pool, and you will be given a score as per your answers.  It is the high-scoring applicants who get selected to apply for provincial nomination. The EOI doesn’t guarantee that you will receive an invitation to apply, but you will be notified if your invitation has been invited. The EOI is valid for up to 12 months or till the time someone receives an invitation. After 12 months, the EOI will be automatically deleted. There is no registration fee for the application, and the applicant will be eligible for the streams as per the ability to meet the requirements.

The applicants can register an Expression of Interest at a given time provided you have given accurate information at the time of registering.
