January 4, 2021 - Changes to internal review process for all streams
On January 1, 2021, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) made changes to the internal review process for all OINP streams in order to implement the new mandatory Request for Internal Review form. Where an application is not approved the following updates apply:
If you are not nominated If your application is unsuccessful, we will let you know by email. If you think we made an error in our decision that led to your application being refused, you may ask for an internal review.
To request an internal review:
Download and complete the Notice of Request for Internal Review form. Ensure that you carefully read the instructions on the form.
In a separate document, clearly identify an error or errors in the director’s decision or order that, if not made, would have resulted in the decision or order being decided differently (see subsection 10(1)(a) of Ontario Regulation 421/17 (Approvals))
Send the completed Notice of Request for Internal Review form and all supporting documents by email to email@example.com. You must email us within:
30 calendar days of receiving your notice of refusal if you live in Canada
60 calendar days of receiving your notice of refusal if you live outside of Canada
Don’t include any new information that you did not include in your original application, unless that information was not reasonably available to you at the time at the time the decision or order was made. New information that you did not include in your application because of an oversight will not be considered. Internal review requests must be sent by email. We will not accept requests by mail, fax or in-person.
