Ontario Increases OINP Quota to 21,500 for 2024

Ontario’s provincial nomination quota for the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has surged to 21,500 in 2024, marking a significant increase of 5,000 spots compared to previous years.

The allocation rise, up from 16,500 in 2023, reflects nearly 20% of the immigration levels plan for provincial nominees this year, showcasing Ontario’s commitment to attracting skilled immigrants.
