Immigration to Ontario - Canada's provincial program (OINP)
You can immigrate to Canada through one of the provincial programs, Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program.
Ontario is one of the most attractive regions for immigration to Canada. Toronto, the largest city in the country and the economic engine of Canada, is located here. It is easier to find well-paid job in Ontario, as well as to make connections due to the numerous diasporas. The province also borders the North American states, and on the border with New York State you can find Niagara Falls, the pride of both countries.
Applicants who do not score the required points for immigration to Canada through the federal program can try to immigrate through one of the 11 provincial programs. They are suitable for a wide range of occupations. These programs are also interesting for those who plan to live and work in a particular province or territory.
