Ontario Immigration Programs

Ontario as a province in Canada also has some authority over the immigrants that it receives as a province. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program contains various streams that are aimed at skilled workers, recent graduates, and entrepreneurs who are looking to come to Canada. These programs are a great way for those wanting to settle permanently in Ontario to obtain Permanent Residence. Often, provincial programs such as the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program have shorter processing times than their Federal counterpart programs.
