What is the Regional Immigration Pilot?

The Regional Immigration Pilot was launched to help address labour shortages in some of these communities. It allows the province to allocate 150 nominations in 2021 to three rural locations: Chatham-Kent, Cornwall, and Quinte West/Belleville. These municipalities demonstrated to the province that they have labour shortages in skilled occupations, and the ability to help newcomers get settled.

If you are eligible for any of the OINP Employer Job Offer streams and your full-time job offer is in one of the participating communities, you may be able to get a provincial nomination through the pilot.

 

There are three Employer Job Offer streams:

  • Foreign Worker Stream, for workers with a skilled job offer in Ontario;
  • International Student Stream, for international students with skilled job offers;
  • In-Demand Skills Stream, for workers in occupations that have labour shortages in Ontario
