Ontario increases minimum penalty for immigration act violations

On July 4, 2024, the Government of Ontario announced an increase in the minimum penalty for violations under the Ontario Immigration Act or its regulations. The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) revised the formula for calculating administrative monetary penalties (AMPs) for employers, representatives, recruiters, and beneficiaries of financial gains from such infringements. The minimum AMP has been raised from $2,000 to $10,000 for offenders. For violations occurring on or after July 1, 2024, the new formula is AMP = (A × B × C) + D. This change aims to strengthen enforcement and ensure compliance with immigration regulations.
