The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program’s (OINP) Entrepreneur Stream

 

Ontario is the most multicultural province in Canada, where half of all new immigrants make their home. Prosperous land of opportunity, Ontario is a democratic society built by the hard work of generations of immigrants.
On the map, Ontario is in the middle of Canada. It is also the hub of the Canadian economy. It is a magnet for manufacturing, finance, tourism and other industries. It’s also a leader in science and the arts. The population of 12 million includes people from 200 countries who speak as many as 130 languages. 
The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program’s (OINP) Entrepreneur Stream is a great opportunity for individuals from countries outside of Canada to implement a new business idea or buy an existing business in Ontario. It also offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to be nominated for permanent resident status once their business has been successfully established in Ontario.

The Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program

The Atlantic Immigration pilot program is now open and ready to receive applications! 
The Atlantic provinces are often referred to as 'the Maritimes' as they are located on the far east coast of the country.

This is changing in the region, as oil production, information technology, biomedical research, post-secondary education and tourism becomes more important for local economies.
Through this program, the federal government — together with the governments of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island — aim to welcome 2,000 newcomers and their families to the Atlantic region of Eastern Canada in 2017.
