In a recent update by Canada Immigration, Ontario has put forward a proposal for the introduction of the EOI system. The OINP professionals stated that the new point-based Expression of Interest will be implemented in the existing PNP program.
The introduction of EOI System is for the following streams.
- Employer Job Offer Category: Foreign Worker
- Employer Job Offer Category: International Student
- Employer Job Offer Category: In-Demand Skills

With the current system, it follows the first-come, first-serve approach. The application window is opened for a specific time due to which not all the applicants can apply for it. Within a few hours, it closes due to the huge amount of applications.
The primary motive of bringing the EOI system is to provide equal opportunity to candidates. As of now, the amendments are under consideration till 23rd October 2020.
For the new system, the candidates will have to submit multiple information like work experience, education, language score and more. Accordingly, they will be assigned points for ranking.
There is no specific information published by Ontario. Along with the proposed change Ontario stated the aim of presenting the new system is “ to more strategically manage intake, increase the OINP’s labour market responsiveness and better respond to regional labour market needs.”
OINP will be releasing the details right after the finalization of the changes of the new EOI system. We are curious to know more about the system. Stay tuned for further updates.
