Ontario recently shares details of the addition of a new pilot program under its OINP Entrepreneur stream. As per the details, the province is going to select 100 entrepreneurs under the new pilot program.

. The eligibility terms to apply to the 2-year pilot program are:

  • Must have a net worth of $800,000 CAD, if in GTA or a minimum of $400,000 CAD, if outside GTA.
  • Must agree to buy or set up a business in Ontario.
  • Also, agree to either invest a minimum amount of $200,000 CAD in a business outside GTA or a minimum of $600,000 CAD if the business is outside GTA.
  • Besides, must have a minimum of 2 years of work experience. Either as a senior manager or as an owner of a business in the past 60 days.


Further, to apply you will have to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). An EOI is not a formal application but shows the applicant’s interest to apply in OINP. So, after approval of your EOI, you will get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to submit a complete application to the OINP.


After application approval, you will get a work permit to set up your business in Ontario. Also, after running your business for 20 months you can apply to OINP for nomination to get a Canada PR.
