Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration

Mandate

The Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration (MCI), which serves three ministers (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, the Minister Responsible for Women’s Issues, and the Minister Responsible for Seniors Affairs), has lead responsibility for immigration and newcomer settlement, the voluntary and not-for-profit sector, provincial honours and awards, women’s issues, and seniors’ affairs.

The Ministry’s vision is: “A diverse and inclusive society where all people contribute to a strong economy, caring society and enhanced quality of life.”

To achieve this vision, the Ministry works in partnership with other provincial ministries, other levels of government and the public, private and not-for-profit sectors to develop and implement policies and programs that:

  • Maximize the benefits of immigration for newcomers and Ontario by enabling and supporting their successful economic and social integration;
  • Promote and recognize greater social inclusion, civic and community engagement, and volunteerism;
  • Build a society free of violence against women and increase women’s economic security;
  • Improve the quality of life for Ontario’s seniors by helping them live safely, independently and with dignity in their communities; and
  • Provide accessible, inclusive and respectful service to Ontario’s diverse communities.

Ministry Programs and Activities

The Ministry’s Results-based Plan for 2014-15 directly supports key government priorities of a “Highly Skilled Workforce,” “Vibrant and Strong Communities” and “A Fair Society” by improving the economic and social outcomes of women, seniors and newcomers, increasing the competitiveness of employers, strengthening the capacity of the not-for-profit sector and strengthening Ontario’s economy and innovation agenda.
