OINP 2023 nomination allocation

On March 23, 2023, the Government of Ontario released the OINP 2023 nomination allocation. The annual quota for Ontario under the Provincial Nominee Program will be 16,500 in 2023, 6,750 more than last year. 

Last year, the province nominated 9,750 candidates to apply for permanent residence with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). This is almost 70 percent higher than the previous year’s quota. This year, the province has already issued 10,680 invitations under all OINP`s streams.


Compared to only 9,750 in 2022 and 9,000 in 2021, Ontario’s quota increased to 16,500 in 2023. Additionally, the province is doubling the number of economic immigrants it selects in 2025 to over 18,000 due to the nearly 300,000 jobs that go unfilled each day. The Ontario government claims that this will aid in resolving the province’s severe labor shortage.

Year OINP Quota
2023 16,500
2024 17,000* Expected number
2025 18,361


Other provinces’ annual PNP allocations have also increased

Canada expects to accept more newcomers through provincial nominee programs (PNPs) in the coming years. This year, Canada provided provinces with multi-year allocation plans for the first time. The plan includes an unprecedented 44 percent growth in PNP allocations for 2023 and offers potential numbers for 2024 and 2025.
