Ontario is home to Canada’s largest number of immigrants. There are nine streams under the Ontario PNP for those seeking to increase their chance of immigrating to Canada.
In 2021, Ontario welcomed 198,000 new permanent residents, or nearly 49% of all new permanent residents in Canada. This is not surprising as Ontario boasts Canada’s largest population as well as its largest city. Many newcomers chose to settle in Ontario due to its strong economy, well-developed support systems, and already-established immigrant communities. Those who wish to settle in Ontario have nine pathways to choose from through Ontario’s Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP).
