Ontario PNP Questions | Canada Immigration Forum

gn02090867 said:

Hi,

I am new here. I apologize if my questions have been asked/answered before.

I am a Software Engineer, recently just got an offer from an employer in Ontario. (I haven’t accepted the offer yet). I am an international student with post graduate work visa. My questions are the following:

1. Is it okay to ask my employer to help me with PNP application? Do people do this, when they got an job offer?
2. What would be the reasons for an employer to say “NO” on helping me with PNP?
3. I understand PNP application fee is expensive, what is the success/failure rate for my PNP application after I pay?

Thank you for all the responses!

Regards,
Terry

Since your question hasn’t been answered and it’s been a while, I will try to answer these questions for you although I might be not the best person to do so.

1. Is it okay to ask my employer to help me with PNP application? Do people do this, when they got an job offer?

I am a Business graduate from Ontario, and upon having offered employment, I asked if they would be willing to help me with my immigration. They agreed to help me with my PNP Application (Back in 2012) and also claimed to have helped several other employees. Things didn’t go well with me and the employer, however. I moved to Saskatchewan. Since then, I have been in Saskatchewan and got my immigration under Saskatchewan PNP.

2. What would be the reasons for an employer to say “NO” on helping me with PNP?

Opportunities Ontario will charge a non-refundable processing fee, payable with each nominee application. The fee is $2,000 for all General Category applicants who will be working for an employer located in the GTA and $1,500 for all General Category applicants who will be working for an employer located outside the GTA. For employees of investors, the fee is $3,500. Now depending on whether you and the employer are willing to negotiate on sharing these costs, the employer might not be willing to shell out the $2000 on someone who would be on probation. Also, Provincial nominees will receive priority processing from CIC, so employers that are aware of this fact will not want to shell the money out if they feel you are overqualified for the position and might move in the near future.

3. I understand PNP application fee is expensive, what is the success/failure rate for my PNP application after I pay?

In general, across Canada, the PNP success rate has been said to be close to 95%. However, keep in mind that this success rate is for applicants who have gotten Provincial Nomination and have applied to CIC for PR Status. The probability of success in getting a nomination from province is very difficult to guess. As long as you have submitted a complete application package and paid the required fee, I do not see a reason for them to reject it.
