Working of the OINP Entrepreneur Stream

The basis of the functioning of the OINP Entrepreneur stream is on the points system of the Express of Interest. When an interested person submits the EOI applying to the program, they get the score from 170 points. Additionally, these points are based on Experience, Human Capital, and Investment factors. The quantum of personal investment in the OINP Entrepreneur Stream is based on the location of the business.

  • For the businesses located in the Greater Toronto Area, they must invest $1,000,000 CAD and also control one-third of the business equity.
  • Additionally, for the businesses located outside the Greater Toronto Area, they must invest $500,000 CAD and also control one-third of the business equity.
  • A Business involving the information and communications technology or digital communication must invest $500,000 CAD irrespective of the location. Moreover, the applicants must control one-third of business equity.


EOI profiles that enter the program get a rank against other profiles. Finally, the OINP invites entrepreneurs with the top-score periodically. The EOIs are active for 12 months before their removal from the selection pool.
