The Destination Ontario Airport Welcome program is a collaboration between Ontario post-secondary institutions and several municipalities; the operations are led by the iCent team.

Staff at the welcome booth greet international students exiting Customs and Immigration at the Arrivals level with a welcome package, offer assistance with transportation, accommodation, provide free calls home to inform family, and other helpful services. The program also provides an app called iCent that students can access prior to arrival; this app offers key information to help students get started in Canada.

By providing a warm welcome and guidance to new students arriving in Canada, the Destination Ontario partnership aims to attract and retain more international students, and enhance the profile of Ontario’s cities as highly desirable international learning destinations in Canada.
