Ontario reopened and paused Masters Graduate Stream on the same day
Ontario reopened its Masters Graduate Stream (MGS) to 667 new registrations on Tuesday, April 30 and quickly reached its allocation in just a few hours.
The total intake limit of the MGS is 1000 in 2019. It was last opened on Tuesday, March 5th at 10:00 a.m. with an intake limit of 1,000 registrations. Due to technical issues, the stream was closed at 11:42 a.m. Only a total of 333 candidates successfully submitted their applications within1 hour and 42 minutes.
The MGS is designed for international students with an eligible Ontario master’s degree to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. It is one of the most popular immigration streams in Ontario because it does not require a job offer from an Ontario employer. Due to limited immigration allocation and a competitive employment environment, many graduates have to leave Ontario to seek immigration opportunities in other provinces.
