Nearly 40 percent of Canada’s population calls Ontario home. It is the most popular landing destination for immigrants from all around the globe. Ontario is also home to Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, and its largest city, Toronto. Ontario is the center of Canada’s economic, social, and political life. People choose to land in Ontario because of its job opportunities, high income and diverse population. In fact, more than half of those living in Toronto were born outside of Canada.
Ontario’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is known as the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP).
Through this program, aspiring immigrants with the skills and experience targeted by the province may receive a provincial nomination from Ontario, after which they can apply for Canadian permanent residence with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
