Ontario announced changes to the program requirements and scoring factors in the OINP

With the implementation of the new TEER-based NOC system, the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development of Ontario implemented amendments to Ontario Regulation 422/17 (General). The OINP has updated requirements in several streams as well as changed some scoring factors. In the Employer Job Offer International Students Stream, applicants will have to show certificates of at least one year of study. In the Employer Job Offer Foreign Worker stream, candidates will have to reach CLB level 5 to be eligible. Points for Canadian work experience will be awarded for at least 6 months of work in a job offer position. Allocation of points for various fields will also change with an emphasis on STEM and Health fields getting the most points. OINP also introduced new regionalization, dividing Ontario into four zones: Northern Ontario, Outside GTA, GTA, and Toronto. Points for NOC type and wage range also have changed.
