Ontario’s 2019 Nomination Allocation

On March 15, 2019, the Ontario government announced its 2019 nomination allocation from the federal government that the province can issue to immigrants through the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). The federal government has allocated 6,650 spots to Ontario, as well as an additional 250 nominations specifically for temporary foreign workers in intermediate skilled occupations – National Occupation Classification (NOC) Skill Level C). Thus, in total, Ontario received 6,900 nominations for 2019. This is less than the province requested (7600), but more than last year’s quota – 6,600 and more than the final number of nominations in 2018. In 2018, 13,571 new immigrants immigrated through the Ontario program.
