Except Quebec, every other state in Canada has Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The province nominates individuals interested in settling in for fast-tracked immigration. The province decides all the protocols, guidelines and legal framework for the applicant to fulfill. Along with the formal guidelines, it also sets the “streams” which are individual immigration programs targeting precise demographics of skilled workers, students, and business professionals.
With the help of this allows each province to judge and invite applicants with precise talent and skills along with work experience. It also works to cope with the professional requirements of a job in the most efficient manner. Also, helps to boost the local labor market needs of their distinct economy.
How to Apply for Canadian Permanent Residence with PNP
Being one of the flagship programs, PNP seek to retain eligible and skilled foreign candidates by providing a more active and accessible application process for Canadian permanent residence.
PNPs across Canada are actively seeking and retaining eligible foreign nationals by making the processing of applying for Canadian permanent residence more accessible.
Whether a Provincial Nomination certificate is obtained via Express Entry or outside the selection system, a nominee will be required to submit a separate application for Canada permanent resident (PR) status to IRCC.
The Northern Canada territory of Nunavut does not have a PNP and Quebec does not participate in the federal government’s PNP.
