Have you completed at least half of your studies in Canada, and have graduated or will soon be graduating from an eligible publicly funded Canadian college or university? If yes, you may be qualified to become a permanent resident of Canada.
In order to apply, students must:
- Have completed a minimum of a two-year diploma or degree program, while studying on a full-time basis. One-year post-graduate degree programs and certificate programs, which require a previous degree or diploma (which may have been obtained abroad), are also eligible.
- Have a job offer in a managerial, professional or skilled trades occupation (NOC 0, A or B). The job offer does not have to be related to the field of study.
- Have a job offer that is permanent and full-time and meets the entry level wage for the occupation, rather than the prevailing wage required for applicants in the General Category.
- Apply within two years of the date on which they received their degree or diploma, or in the alternative, during the last semester of completing their degree or diploma (in which case they will have to provide transcripts which indicate that they will be graduating at the end of the semester).
- Have legal status, if the prospective international student nominee is in Canada.
- Have received their employer’s approval letter, Joint Verification form signed by their prospective employer, and Pre-screen Position form.
International students do not need to have any previous work experience. Eligible international students may apply for an approved position from within Canada or from overseas.
However, international students subsidized through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) grants or home country scholarship with return obligations will not be eligible for Opportunities Ontario unless such obligations have been fulfilled.
