IRCC Increases Ontario Immigration Quota for 2024

Dear future neighbour,

The 2024 quota for the Ontario Immigration Nominee Program increases to 21,500. This increment is a step in the right direction as OINP has asked the federal government for an increase in the PNP quota since 2021.

In 2023, the first major increase in OINP allotment was effected from a total of 9,750 to 16,500. Now in 2024, an additional 5,000 has been added to the number in 2023 bringing it to a total of 21,500.

The new OINP allocation in 2024 is nearly 20% of the immigration levels plan for provincial nomination this year.

Year OINP Quota
2024 21,500
