Ontario has announced some key changes to its Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) streams. These changes have been made in its e-filing system, which aim at inviting more number of users to apply in OINP through e-filing. The applicants are advised to access the e-filing system through official website of Immigration Ontario only, as any attempt to access e-filing via One-key system of the government may result in delay in finishing the application as well as other issues.

Key instructions to use e-filing system

There a few key instructions every applicant should keep in mind while trying to access and use the OINP e-filing system. Once a candidate accesses the e-filing system,
  • He/she should not open several tabs and
  • Do not refresh the page
  • Do not click on any link that takes you to another page

Committing any of the above error may result in losing the place in the OINP queue of candidates. As an applicant, everyone is advised to stay in the queue till the time system gets ready to continue.
