Ontario held its second Masters Graduate stream draw on August 25.
In order to be invited, candidates must have an Expression of Interest score of at least 37. This is a slight decrease in the number of applicants who were selected for the second draw. Candidates have 14 days to submit their application and pay $1,500 fee.
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program launched the EOI intake process for Masters Graduate candidates earlier in the month. International students who graduated with a master’s degree from an eligible Ontario institution can now register for immigration through this Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) at any time.
