Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) updates selection factors under Expression of Interest system
Ontario reopened the OINP e-filing system on November 22, following the introduction of the new TEER 2021 classification system. TEER 2021 is a major structural change to the NOC system as it includes the introduction of the Training, Education, Experience and Responsibilities (TEER) category, instead of the previous NOC 0, A, B, C or D, the TEER system classifies occupations based on 5 TEER categories. Under the new TEER system, occupations are classified based on a new five-digit format (instead of the previous four-digit format) and some occupations under the previous skill level B has been split into TEER 2 or 3. Foreign nationals looking to immigrate via an OINP stream can now submit their profile.
