333 people registered for Ontario’s Masters Graduate Stream before March 5 crash

OINP says it will reopen stream once technical issue is 'fully addressed'

More than 300 immigration candidates managed to register successfully in the recent opening of Ontario’s Masters Graduate Stream before a technical error brought it to a premature end. 

In an updated published March 19, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) said 333 people managed to get their registrations in before the problem occurred.

The OINP had a target of 1,000 registrations for the March 5 opening and said it will reopen the stream “as soon as possible, once we know the system issues have been fully addressed.”

The March 5 opening of the Masters Graduate Stream was its first in nearly a year, a fact that led to widespread frustration among users affected by the glitch.

The Masters Graduate Stream is open to international graduates with a master’s degree obtained at an eligible university in Ontario.

The popular stream does not require a job offer in Ontario in order to be eligible for a nomination for Canadian permanent residence.

Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and competition is such that the quota is usually met within an hour or two of opening.
