Ontario Provincial Nominee
Program Requirements 2021

How do you migrate to Ontario?

Ontario is the most sought after province in Canada because it is the center of Canada's economic, political and social life. It is the most populous province in Canada and about 40 per cent of Canada's population lives in the province. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) allows the Ontario provincial government to nominate potential immigrants who can contribute to the province's economic development.

OINP has the following sub-divisions designed to welcome immigrants with diverse backgrounds such as skilled workers, business immigrants and graduates:

  • Department of Human Capital
  • Employer job offer department
  • Department of Business
