Province Attracting Global Talent, Helping Businesses Find Skilled Workers
Ontario is continuing to help businesses attract the talented people they need to compete globally by accepting more skilled newcomers than ever before through its successful Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP).
Laura Albanese, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, and Deb Matthews, Deputy Premier and Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development, were at the University of Toronto's Centre for International Experience today to make the announcement.
Recognizing the success of the OINP and its importance to Ontario's economy, the federal government has increased the province's 2017 allocation by 500 nominees to a total of 6,000. Through the OINP, Ontario is able to nominate people for permanent resident status. Nominees include skilled workers, international students, experienced entrepreneurs, and key staff of established foreign corporations seeking to expand into Ontario.
Next week, the OINP will open applications for its three highest-volume streams - the International Masters Graduate Stream, the International PhD Graduate Stream, and the Ontario Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream. With their advanced language skills and global connections, international students are important to the success of Ontario's economy.
The OINP is also modernizing its application process this year with a new, paperless online system, which will speed up the application process, improve customer service, and help employers find the skilled workers they need sooner.
Attracting and retaining skilled newcomers is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday live
Ontario’s federal nomination allocation has increased from 2,500 in 2014 to 6,000 in 2017.
About 25 per cent of Ontario’s 2016 nominees work in the thriving ICT sector. This is more than double the amount suggested by Ontario business leaders and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (10 per cent).
In 2015, the Premier convened an Expert Panel on a Highly Skilled Workforce to provide advice on how Ontario’s workforce can prepare for a more technology- and knowledge-based economy.
CANADA ONTARIO PROVINCE MADE NUMBER OF CHANGES TO PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM WHICH BECAME EFFECTIVE FROM 1ST FEB 2017
On February 1, 2017, the Provincial Immigration Programs Act and its corresponding Regulations came into effect in British Columbia. The administration of the BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is now legislated under the Act, whereas previously it was governed by its own program policy. The Act administers the BC PNP by:
appointing decision making authority;
granting authority to collect PNP fees;
setting out the amount of PNP fees;
allowing for inspection to be conducted to monitor compliance with program requirements;
allowing BC PNP to cancel applications upon discovery of misrepresentation; and
implementing a process for reviewing refused applications.
Some of the key aspects are as follows:
Skill Immigrations Fees have increased to $700 per application from $550 per application. Entrepreneur Immigration Fees remains at $300 for registration, $3,500 for application, and $1,000 for key staff. There is now a $200 fee for requesting a review of a decision.
The director may conduct an inspection to determine compliance, assess an application for approval, and assess a request for review of a decision by various means legislated under the Act. The director also has authority to summon and enforce the attendance of witnesses and compel witnesses to give evidence and produce records.
Cancellation of Approval
The director may cancel an approval if the director is satisfied that the person has provided false or misleading information in an application, and may refuse a subsequent application for a period of up to two years from the date of the cancellation.
In addition to the implementation of fee, a request for a review must be made within 30 days of the date of notice for a person resident in Canada or 60 days of the date of the notice for a person who is not a resident in Canada. A decision by BC PNP to withdraw a nomination is not entitled to have that decision reviewed by the BC PNP under the internal review process set out in the Act.
The new Act provides greater transparency in the delivery of the BC PNP. However, it also means an applicant must ensure that an application under the BC PNP adheres to the Act and familiarize himself with his rights and obligations under the Act.
