International PhD Graduates

International Students – PhD Graduate Stream

Notice: Deadline for Submitting Online Applications through the OINP e-Filing Portal

In order to be responsive to unprecedented application-volume demand on the system, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has revised the deadline from seven to 14 calendar days to submit applications through the e-Filing Portal for the following streams:

  • International Masters Graduate Stream
  • International PhD Graduate Stream
  • Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream

Once you successfully register a profile under any of the above streams through the OINP e Filing Portal, you now have 14 calendar days to complete your application. ‎We are making every effort to ensure we have the technical capacity to meet volume demands and we will continue to monitor the system 24 hours a day, to address any issues.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) offers an opportunity for international students with a PhD degree obtained in Canada to live and work permanently in Ontario.

Applicants applying to the PhD Graduate Stream can apply without a job offer.
