About Ontario Immigrant Network

Ontario Immigrant Network is a non-profit organization that brings together communities and newcomer entrepreneurs through business success opportunities. By connecting talented newcomer entrepreneurs to existing business opportunities, we help newcomers realize their full potential, while enabling communities to find their next generation of business leaders.

How Do We Connect Communities and Entrepreneurs?

Ontario Immigrant Network connects, catalyzes and augments community resources so that stakeholders can offer newcomer entrepreneurs excellent opportunities for both their careers and their families. By working with key partners such as the Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership, the Sarnia-Lambton Local Immigration Partnership and the Southwest Economic Alliance, we have developed processes, policies and resources to connect newcomers to meaningful business opportunities.

This is done by generating a list of available business opportunities, which will be then posted to this site, where newcomers can browse for the right business.

If you find a business that is of interest to you, then please contact us. Our services are free, and we are here to help. As a non-profit organization, we are not looking to sell businesses, but rather to create stronger communities and better opportunities for Canada’s newcomers.

What Resources do you Have Available?

Through our partnerships, many resources are available to help newcomer entrepreneurs – economic development, settlement, business services and more. We can also negotiate mentorship resources should you choose to purchase a business. Each case is unique, so let us work with you to see how we can help. And of course, you can check out our resources page for useful online information.

How Does OIN Get Compensated?

OIN is a non-profit organization that does not charge any fees to newcomers. If you purchase a business, you will likely need to pay for the services of lawyers, accountants or other professionals, but you will never pay for any services provided by OIN.

If you would like further details on our organization, please feel free to contact us.
