Ontario Still an Immigrant Destination?
Ontario is still the Canadian immigrant’s destination of choice!
Although Ontario has decreased in the percentage number of immigrants to Ontario (53% in 1998 – 47% in 2007) it is still the highest source province for immigrants to Canada with Quebec at 19.1% a distant second. The numbers to Ontario are still strong and overall the proposed number for 2008 is between 240,000 to 260,000 approaching Canada’s record year in 1957 of 282,164 new immigrants. So immigration to Ontario is alive and strong!
