Ontario Masters Graduate Stream
Ontario Masters Graduate Stream reopens
Presently, Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program announced to reopen its Masters Graduate stream on Tuesday, March 5, at 10 a.m. However, the program limits its opening to 1,000 registrations. OINP announced it will post a notice on its official page once the intake limit has been met.
What is the Ontario Masters Graduate Stream?
In general, Masters Graduate Stream is for international graduates with a master’s degree. Once they obtain a master’s degree at an eligible university in Ontario, they can apply for a provincial nomination. And Provincial Nomination opens them a pathway for Canadian permanent residence.
How to apply?
Applicants have to access the OINP e-Filing Portal directly from the Masters Graduate Stream page on the OINP website. After, they need to click on the “Submit an application” button.
Who is eligible?
You don’t need to have a valid job offer to apply. This is the reason the registration period ends quickly. However, registration is only the beginning for international graduates for a provincial nomination. After successful registration, graduates will have 14 calendar days to submit a full application for OINP.
OINP’s International Student Category has two immigration programs. The other stream is open to Ph.D. graduates who obtained a degree from a qualified Ontario academic institution.
