Ontario province of Canada has introduced a new 'Completeness Check' for accepting the applications under Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). The OINP is largely popular Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) of Canada, which invite the skilled workers from overseas to apply for provincial nomination and subsequently, issue the nominations to the selected candidates to apply permanent residency in Canada.
Completeness verification is essential as per the Ontario Immigration Act
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) operates based on the Ontario Immigration Act, 2015 (Act) and its guidelines. Now, it is noteworthy that section 5 of Ontario Regulation 421/17 (Approvals under the OINP and Other Matters) made under the Act, instructs that all applications be reviewed for completeness.
An applicant need to complete the application as per the program parameters applicable at the time of submitting the paid application. Now a completeness check will be commenced to ensure that an applicant has submitted all essential documents and information to show that you can fulfil the OINP eligibility requirements.
OINP Completeness Check applicable
In case your application is complete, Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) will issue a letter acknowledging its completeness and showing that it has been forwarded for formal assessment in order to confirm that you meet all OINP eligibility requirements.
However, in case the application of an applicant is incomplete, OINP will issue a letter providing the applicant 14 calendar days to submit documentation or provide information that may have been ignored or forgotten at the time of submitting the application to Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program.
Prohibited use of Additional time
The use of additional time is prohibited for fulfilling a requirement that should have been met before the applicant submitted the application, i.e. one cannot use the provision of additional time to take up the language proficiency test. However, the additional time can be used to submit a language proficiency test, which was valid at the date of your application submission.
No extension beyond 14 days
In case you are failed to provide all of the required information or documentation within 14 calendar days, Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) will issue a notification to you that your application is incomplete asking for the application. In such case, your application fee will also be refunded. The OINP will not permit the extensions beyond the 14 calendar days. Hence, once your application has been accepted as complete, the OINP may still contact you asking whether it require additional information to support the formal assessment of the application of applicant.

All our queries are answered to the satisfaction. They have been supportive throughout the PR process, and kept us motivated to not take any haste decision. Their knowledge and experience is up to the mark. Thank you Visas Avenue team, keep up the good work.
Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.
When my husband and I were looking to move to Canada we researched on a few agencies to help us out with process. Visas Avenue came with a lot of good reviews and I am glad we went with them. Right from the initial meet up with the local team at Chennai and the follow up coordinating with Mrigya and Arpita has been great. They patiently answered all our queries and guided us at crucial junctures. They ensured our profile captured all the necessary points. We are very happy with our decision and glad we decided on visas avenue.

Have recommended Visas Avenue to a lot of friends and will continue to do so!
The teams, people and process for VISA application at VISAs Avenue is worth appreciation. It was a time consuming process in my Case being a PNP applicant for Canada and I must say they really helped in getting Ontario province nomination. They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.
We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
We have obtained our Canada PR (Express Entry) through Visas Avenue , Delhi and had a very pleasant experience with them. They are very professional and dedicated people. Our special compliments for Mr. Yatin Malhotra who was our case manager and his entire team. With his expertise and knowledge he lead our case to success within a short span which was even unexpected for us. His clear vision about every aspect of documentation made things easier for us. Moreover, at times when dilemma arises over any issue, he never hesitated in taking full responsibility for his decisions.He responded to our repeated queries over phone in very positive and polite manner and had taken personal pain to complete the whole process on time , keeping all deadlines into consideration. In addition, Ms. Shivani Mehra initially guided us properly that helped us build more confidence in Visas Avenue. Also Mr. Gaurav Arora, our case Co- Ordinator helped immensely to lead our case to success through his timely, systematic planning & support.Finally, I would like to conclude saying that Visas Avenue is worth every penny we spent and are very happy that now we are Permanent Residents of Canada.
