The Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development has implemented a regulatory amendment impacting the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program’s Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills stream. The amendment can be found at Ontario Regulation 31/22 (General) (made to Ontario Regulation 422/17 (General)).
- Have a valid Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration (CVOR) certificate, and
- A Carrier Safety Rating (CSR) of Excellent, Satisfactory or Satisfactory Unaudited.
The amendment aims to:
- Protect successful nominees and support public safety on Ontario highways as employers without an acceptable safety rating will be ineligible for approval, and
- Promote applications from employers with clear business ties to the province, since employers will be required to have their vehicles plated in Ontario
The amendment was made effective February 1, 2022.
