How to immigrate to Canada without a job offer via Ontario PNP

Can you move to Canada without a job offer? Of course, you can! Let’s tell you how to go ahead with Canada immigration even without a job offer from Canada.

Immigrating through OINP

The OINP is among the most active PNPs in Canada. Every year, OINP issues around 8,000 invitations via multiple streams to eligible immigration candidates. If you want to settle in Ontario after Canada immigration without having a job offer to start with, you may apply under the Ontario Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream.

What is Ontario Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream

It’s an immigration stream under the OINP that offers skilled foreign workers having the necessary skilled work experience, education, and language skills the opportunity to apply for Canada PR so that they can live and work in Ontario.

The first step in getting to immigrate via this stream is that the candidate gets provincially nominated by Ontario. After that, the candidate will be eligible to apply for Canada PR after being invited via a federal Express Entry draw.

Eligibility for the Ontario Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream

The candidate must:

  • Have an Express Entry profile that’s active
  • Meet the requirements for eligibility for either FSWP or CEC
  • Meet the work experience requirements of the Stream
  • Have a Canadian Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Ph.D. degree or a foreign education credential that’s equivalent to that
  • Achieve a minimum language proficiency level of CLB 7
  • Be willing to live in Ontario
  • Have enough funds to meet the costs of settling in Ontario
