The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) operates an Expression of Interest system to nominate qualifying candidates for permanent residence in the province. Ontario issues Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to the candidates in the Express Entry pool through its Expressions of Interest pool. The candidates should submit a Permanent Residence application within 60 days of receiving a Notification of Interest.
