Ontario is the most multicultural province in Canada, where half of all new immigrants make their home.

On the map, Ontario is in the middle of Canada. It is also the hub of the Canadian economy. It is a magnet for manufacturing, finance, tourism and other industries. It’s also a leader in science and the arts.

Ontario is a big, diverse place. We have one million square kilometres and more than 12 million people. Our population includes people from 200 countries, who speak as many as 130 languages. Our cities are vibrant and our scenery is spectacular.

Ontario is a great place to live, work and raise a family. As Canada’s most populous province, you will find diverse communities, ample cultural and recreational activities, an excellent public school system and many post-secondary education opportunities for your family.

Ontario, which is one of Canada’s most prosperous provinces, expects to remain one of the fastest-growing regions in the advanced industrial world.

We have a diverse economy, with extensive manufacturing, financial and business services. Ontario makes up 40 per cent of Canada’s total economic output and more than half of the country’s manufacturing shipments.

In recent years there has been a big shift towards producing exports, especially in areas such as information technology, and the automotive and chemical industries.

Ontario is the place to be!!
