Questions About Immigrating

While we have general information about how to immigrate to Ontario, Settlement.Org does not have comprehensive information about the immigration application process (for example, for skilled workers, business immigration, visiting, work permits, study permits and so on). Nor are we able to answer questions about how to immigrate in our Discussion Forums. It is simply impossible for us to reply to every request for information about immigrating to Ontario.
