Employer job offer foreign worker stream draw

Foreign workers with a job offer in a skilled occupation can apply to live and work permanently in Ontario through the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Workers stream.

Your job offer must be for a skilled job in the National Occupational Classification’s TEER (Training, Education, Experience, and Responsibilities) categories 1, 2, or 3. (NOC). Foreign workers both inside and outside of Canada are eligible for the Foreign Workers stream.

Before submitting an application to be nominated for permanent residency by the Ontario government, you must first register in the OINP’s Expression of Interest System and obtain an invitation to apply. The next step is to submit an application to the federal government through Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada if you are nominated (IRCC). They are the ones who ultimately decide who gets permanent resident status.
