What Are The Benefits of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program For Toronto Business Immigration

Ontario is home to Canada's economic center, Toronto, and its capital city, Ottawa. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP), a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), offers a variety of immigration pathways that allow foreign nationals to become permanent residents of Canada. A Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows provinces to nominate immigrants who meet their economic needs. Within these programs, there are business immigration categories for people who want to start or invest in a Canadian business.

Toronto is a top destination for tourists and business visitors as well as immigrants! As one of the most multicultural cities in the world, many foreigners wish to move here. Its strong economy is built on tech, finance, film-making, education, business services and tourism. Toronto is in the top 10 most livable cities in the world and in the top 3 most livable cities in North America along with Calgary and Vancouver. A recent report named Toronto, Ontario as the #1 tech city in North America. A 2019 study showed that Toronto saw the biggest growth in technology jobs of any North American city over the past five years, more than San Francisco, New York and Seattle.
