In the report about the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) in 2020, the government provided the data on how many days per year the paper-based streams of the OINP accepted applications. Masters Graduate Stream opened only once for one day. Employer Job Offer: International Student and Foreign Worker Streams, were open for three days in total.
Employer Job Offer: International Student Stream – 3 days
Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills Stream – 320 days
Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker Stream – 3 days
Ph.D. Graduate Stream – 365 days
Masters Graduate Stream – 1 day
Entrepreneur Stream – 365 days
Such enormous agiotage is one of the reasons to introduce the upcoming Expression of Interest system, that will implement a points-based selection process, which will allow avoiding the problems with those streams in the past.
