New Ontario Regional Immigration Pilot Launches

Are you looking for new job opportunities in Canada but prefer a slower, more intimate and close-knit way of life? Ontario has just launched its new Regional Immigration Pilot to help skilled workers start a new life in Ontario’s smaller communities and get permanent residency in Canada.

This new two-year pilot, which was launched earlier in June 2020, falls under the Employer Job Offer Category of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) and allows skilled foreign workers who have a full time, permanent job offer in one of the participating communities in Ontario, immigrate to Canada.

There are currently three participating communities under this pilot, namely:

  • Chatham-Kent;
  • Cornwall; and
  • Belleville and Quinte West
