  • Ontario Is Top Choice for Immigrants Moving to Canada

    The Canadian province of Ontario continues to be the #1 destination for immigrants moving to Canada.


    In 2017, 111,925 new immigrants out of the 286,480 relocating to Canada that year settled in Ontario, with 85,500 of these newcomers moving to the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).


    By comparison, the French-speaking province of Quebec attracted 52,390 new immigrants in 2017; 42,100 moved to Alberta; and 38,445 decided to live in British Columbia.


    There are several reasons why so many people who immigrate to Canada choose to live in Ontario.


    Ontario has a growing economy which is creating thousands of Canadian jobs, particularly in the technology sector and manufacturing.


    Both Toronto and Ottawa are key technology hubs in Canada where several high-tech companies are located and the strong demand for IT professionals is attracting skilled foreign workers from around the world (including the United States).


    Toronto is also a multicultural city and a comfortable place for immigrants to live in Canada.


    Of course, the high quality of life generally enjoyed by Toronto residents resulted in Canada’s largest metropolis being ranked by The Economist as the #4 most livable city in the world in August 2017.


    With all that Ontario has to offer immigrants, this prosperous province was the top destination for skilled foreign workers approved to immigrate to Canada through the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) between 2010 and 2015.


    For example, 62% of the “economic immigrants” moving to Canada through the FSWP in 2010-2015 decided to live in Ontario, while 17% relocated to British Columbia and another 17% settled in Alberta.


    Thus, while there are many great places to live in Canada, no other province or territory compares to Ontario in terms of the Canadian job opportunities that are available, plus the high standard of living there is hard to beat.
