The Ministry of Labour proposing to amend OINP’s Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills stream
This week, the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development proposed amendments to Ontario Regulation 422/17 (General). Moreover, these amendments will impact the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program’s Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills stream.
Amendments to Ontario Regulation
The Ministry is proposing to establish a new selection criterion for employers seeking an approval of a NOC 7511 (Transport truck drivers) employment position under the Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills stream. The new selection criterion would require these employers to be registered with Ontario’s Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration (CVOR) system. They also need to demonstrate that they have a Carrier Safety Rating (CSR) of Excellent, Satisfactory or Satisfactory-Unaudited.
The proposal “support Ontario’s commitment to road safety and to protect successful nominees and the general public”.
The amendment would:
– Protect successful nominees and support public safety on Ontario highways as employers without an acceptable safety rating would be ineligible for approval.
– Eliminate difficulty assessing out-of-province vehicle safety ratings. Also, promote applications from employers with clear business ties to the province. Of course, they would require employers to have their vehicles plated in Ontario.
