Ontario PNP Supports Regional Immigration

As the Ontario province continues as one of the top options for skilled immigrant workers, the purpose of the Regional Immigration Pilot is to support companies in the province’s regional communities that need local skilled labor. The 3 communities chosen to engage in the pilot were all considered to have a vital need for workers and a failure to fill the jobs locally.

In order to improve the pilot, the Ontario government asked feedback from regional communities over the Ontario. Tom Smith, Minister of Community, Social Services and Children, and M.P.P Bay of Quinte, showed his pleasure at the communities chosen. Quinte West and Belleville have wonderful infrastructure and potential to welcome immigrants and support them to settle in the province.

Ontario PNP recently made a request to the Canadian government to increase its quota of economic newcomers in order to fill severe labor deficits throughout the Ontario province. The province of Ontario would like to get the approval to raise the number of invitations through the O.I.N.P program, aiming to raise the number from 7,000 to 13,300 over the following two years.

This year, the Ontario province reached its quota prior to the close of December. Understanding the continued demand for skilled labor, the federal government awarded the province with an additional 700 provincial nominations.

The province’s Job Creation, Economic Development, and Trade Minister, Vic Fedeli, has requested the Canadian government to work and to help Ontario in its special immigration requirements. He wants the province to achieve more freedom in its process of selection and immigration strategy development.
