The key foreign graduate streams of Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) now reached to their registration intake limit, while most of the students faced a tough time while applying online. Ontario reopened its foreign graduate streams, i.e. International Students Masters Graduate and PhD Graduate stream on February 21, 2017, introducing the online application process for the first time. However, the online application process gave a bizarre experience to the students willing to obtain the permanent residency in Canada through these two key streams.

Disappointing Technical Issue being faced by Foreign graduates on Ontario Website

Most of the students faced a technical error while logging in to the website of the province of Ontario. In fact, the technical error denied an opportunity of getting the permanent residency in Canada to most of the international students in Ontario.

The OINP foreign graduate streams for Masters and PhD students operate in coordination with the federal government and provide a pathway to get permanent residency in Canada to the international students enrolled in these courses in Ontario. The technical problem faced by students since the first day of the opening of these streams.

A few students also demanded to extend the deadline of submitting the application, however, the students who couldnt submit the application will now have to wait for three months to lodge their applications for this program.

Technical Error on the website raised the demand of the immigration program

The Immigration website of the province of Ontario, recorded 117,000 visitors between dates February 21, 2017 and February 24, 2017, while the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) only accepts 6,000 applications under the given streams. The Human Capital Priorities Stream is another popular stream of OINP that receives huge response from the applicants.
