If you want to immigrate to Canada through this Stream, you have to first register in the EOI (I.e., Expression of Interest) System maintained by the OINP. This is how you get the opportunity to receive an ITA (invitation to apply) so that you can file an application online to receive a nomination. Nominations will be issued by the Government of Ontario.

Nominated candidates can apply for PR (permanent residence) with the federal government.  This can be done through IRCC, the body that makes the final decision as to which candidates should be issued permanent residence.
