Welcome to Ontario, the most multicultural province in Canada, where half of all new immigrants make their home. Ontario is a land of opportunity. It is a prosperous, democratic society built by the hard work of generations of immigrants.
On the map, Ontario is in the middle of Canada. It is also the hub of the Canadian economy. It is a magnet for manufacturing, finance, tourism and other industries. It’s also a leader in science and the arts. Our population of 12 million includes people from 200 countries who speak as many as 130 languages. Our cities are vibrant and our scenery spectacular.
Important Notice: The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has fulfilled its 2016 federal nomination allocation. The OINP will continue to process applications already received. Any additional nominations will go towards Ontario’s 2017 allocation.
Ontario has a strong, diversified economy, with many kinds of work and many different industries. Most immigrants come to Ontario because of the opportunities offered here. Our people are our greatest asset, and we welcome the talent and energy that newcomers bring to our province. In return, we offer opportunities and a quality of life that are second to none.
