He needs IELTS(General) in order to create EE profile from which he will get OINP request(if met the criteria). There is no separate website to apply for OINP.

How people get nominated without EE and then file paper based PR?
They're is a seperate website for filling for Ontario's specific PNP program.

https://www.oinp.citizenship.gov.on.ca/oinp_index/resources/app/guest/index.html

Even if you apply for a PNP through a province (for example international students stream, which is a paper based PNP for graduates of Ontario colleges)

You will still be required to apply to the federal government for PR after being nominated by your province.

Therefore you will need the same documents as express entry.

I would only suggest going the paper PNP route if you don't have enough CRS points or you don't qualify for any express entry programs.

The document checklist for PNP PR says this

Since July 1,2012, most applicants to Provincial/territorial Nominee classes in semi or low-skilled professions that fall under National Occupation Classification (NOC) skill level C and D are required to complete a language proficiency test from one of the following designated agencies.

  • IELTS (General Training test only.)
  • CELPIP(General Training test only.), and/or
  • TEF
If this applies to you, then you need to write IELTS again, otherwise no.

I have 438 CRS points with IELTS maxed out, can I apply OINP by going on the link above?

I would suggest with your points, that you should try express entry. I think the cut off was 423 at one point.

However if you are a International student and you have completed a course in Ontario then you can apply. CRS scores aren't a factor in being selected for this ONIP program.

Are you waiting for your OINP application to be approved or you applied for Express Entry PR application? If you are waiting for PR status then raise a webform to get the status IRCC usually replies in 5 days.
