Ontario Draw

Great news for aspiring Ontario residents and graduates,The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program  conducted two separate draws on July 9, 2024, issuing a total of 1,666 ITAs for PR.

  • In a recent draw, the OINP issued a substantial number of permanent residency invitations (1,556) to Masters graduates. Applicants needed a minimum Expression of Interest (EOI) score of 54 to qualify.


The bar for entry just went up for Ontario’s graduate programs!

  • The Masters Graduate Stream saw a slight increase in the required EOI score, going up by 2 points since the March 19th draw. Now, applicants need a score of 54 or above to be considered.
  • There’s also some good news for PhD graduates. OINP invited applicants with an EOI score of 50 or higher, marking an increase of 8 points from the March draw.



Only applications submitted between July 9th, 2023, and July 9th, 2024, were considered for this OINP draw in the Masters Graduate and PhD Graduate streams.

One of the Best Options for International Students

As usual, we advise applicants for Canadian permanent residency to consider current high CRS scores in Express Entry draws.

Instead of obtaining LMIAs or handling payrolls, international students seeking Canadian PR,might consider a Master’s program at a recognized university.
