Students can now apply under the Ontario Masters and PhD Graduate Streams

Posted on May 3, 2017

The Provincial Nominee Program of Ontario OINP has announced to accept applications for the International Masters Graduate &International Ph.D. Graduate Streams from May 1, 2017. This would be the second time in 2017 that the government of the province has opened up to receive applications through these two streams.

What are these two streams about?

The Masters and Ph.D. graduate streams are for international graduates who are looking for a Permanent Residency of Canada.  When in the month of February these streams opened they reached their intake period within a couple of days. The February intake period was the first time when online application system was considered for receiving applications through this stream. It is stated that this online platform will be used during the current intake period as well.

In this context, the Ministry of Citizenship & Immigration, Ontario said “The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program is one of the most popular programs and has received a noteworthy number of applications. The Citizenship and Immigration Ministry have taken comprehensive measures to ensure that the applicants have a comfortable user-friendly experience while accessing the OINP e-filing system. Although the applicants may have to experience longer than the estimated wait times, as an outcome of a large number of applicants attempting to access the system at the same time.”
