  • Application for Ontario’s Entrepreneur Stream

The Ontario government plans to make several changes in the province’s Entrepreneur Stream for immigration to ease up the application process for applicants.

New Changes

In the proposals announced by the province in the past two weeks, Ontario says that it will:

  • Make video interviews of applicants permanent and
  • Monitor applicants less often.

Making video interviews permanent can help speed up the arrival of candidates to the province.

Also, there is not much need to monitor applicants as they will establish a business in the province.

The changes are open to public comment till 23rd April 2021.

Existing Rules

According to the existing rules, the primary applicant and their corporate partner (if any) are required to attend a mandatory interview at OINP offices physically.

When the candidate gets permanent residence, they are monitored by the government for three years to ensure that they abide by all the performance agreement rules.

Ontario’s Entrepreneur Stream

The Entrepreneur Stream is an immigration pathway by the Ontario government for entrepreneurs outside of the country interested in either starting a new business or buying an existing one in the province.

Candidates under this stream do not require a profile in the Express Entry System or a connection to the province. Also, they do not need to have a job offer, as they will be creating jobs in Ontario.
