Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 26, 2011
Immigration law can be complicated for those wishing to live and work in Ontario with permanent resident status. Matthew Jeffery, immigration lawyer, is now helping these individuals and those wishing to nominate them as permanent residents through the Opportunities Ontario Provincial Nominee Program.
Ontario PNP is run by the province, and allows for the nomination of up to 1000 permanent residents each year. The program is designed to help those already living and working, or earning an advanced degree, in Ontario to earn permanent resident status. This allows them to live and work in Ontario indefinitely. The program also covers foreign workers if an employer in Ontario nominates them in an effort to relocate them to work in the province. Some business investors may also be eligible.
“The opportunities available through the Ontario PNP connect local businesses with skilled employees and investors who have an active interest in contributing to our economy," said immigration lawyer, Matthew Jeffery. "It's about giving those who want to be a part of our community on a permanent basis the opportunity to do so. At the same time it ensures the talented individuals we help to develop here through employment and Master's and Ph.D. programs have the ability to stay here."
Program nomination and acceptance requirements vary under the Ontario PNP depending on the category of the applicant. For example, those nominated by an employer will receive work permits when they are nominated. Graduates and soon-to-be graduates of advanced degree programs in Ontario can also nominate themselves without an employer's assistance. However, they will not be able to work until permanent resident status is granted. Business investors have to meet separate requirements, and must be willing to make a significant investment in Ontario that will create jobs in the community.
