Proposed Regulations under the Ontario Immigration Act, 2015 - Phase 2 Regulations
Bill or Act:
Ontario Immigration Act, 2015
Summary of Proposal:
Earlier this fall, MCIIT consulted on a first phase of draft regulations related to selection program eligibility criteria and the administration of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). Those regulations were posted on the regulatory registry from October 9, 2015 until November 23, 2015.
MCIIT is now seeking public input on a second set of draft regulations related to the compliance and enforcement authorities of the Act, and designating additional entities to enable appropriate information sharing. In addition, the ministry is seeking input on a draft Minister's Order setting out the continuation of our settlement and integration programs.
The attached draft regulations include new provisions as well as those previously posted and consulted on during the posting period for the first phase (October 9, 2015 until November 23, 2015). The ministry is currently reviewing all the feedback received during the first posting period and will make any changes, if necessary, prior to coming into force.
For clarity, the new and/or amended provisions for phase 2 are as follows:
- Approvals Under The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program And Administrative Penalties: S. 12, 16-18
- General: S. 3-6
