Welcome

Welcome to Ontario! You’ve come to the right place. Ontario is the place to be, and this is one of the best places to get the information you need to settle — and succeed — here.

Ontario is one of the most diverse places in the world. Our people speak more than 130 languages and they hail from about 200 different countries. Every day, over 300 people choose Ontario as their new home — more than any other province in Canada.

One of the best things about Ontario is that you can be who you are, and still be part of the same large community. In fact, our people are our greatest asset, and one of their greatest assets is their diversity. That’s why we want to continue to attract the best and brightest from around the world, because our diversity strengthens our economy, our prosperity and our province.

In every walk of life, new Canadians are making tremendous contributions to our economy, and our society. And when newcomers to our province succeed, Ontario succeeds.

So, our government will work with you and your family to help you settle here, and succeed here. We will see that your children have the best start in excellent schools. We will see that your family has access to high-quality health care services. And we will work with the Government of Canada to provide a range of settlement and language programs to help you settle quickly and find work.

On this website, you can find out about places to live, work, go to school and study, learn a trade or practise your trade or profession and see how to start a new business in Ontario.

You can also find out more about life in Ontario — about our people and culture, our cities and towns, the weather in Ontario, and our history.

And you can download the important forms you’ll need before you immigrate, and once you arrive here.

Welcome to Ontario — the place to be for people from all over the world.
