The Provincial Nomination Program offers an easy and valuable route to the Permanent Residency of Canada.
The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) allow the provinces and territories of Canada to designate candidates who wish to immigrate to Canada and settle in a particular province. Each province and Canadian territory has its own Provincial Nominee Program. Each PNP has at least one immigration flow that is collaborated with the Federal Express Entry immigration selection system.
Canada's provinces are facing shortage of skilled labor and are inviting professionals from other nations of the world to settle in Canada through these programs. These programs allow foreign citizens with qualifying work experience and skills to be nominated by a province that needs the professional trait they possess. To fill the gap, provinces / territories can nominate students, semi-workers, skilled workers or businessmen for immigration.
PNPs throughout Canada are welcoming eligible foreign citizens by making the application process for permanent residence in Canada more accessible.
If a candidate obtains a Provincial Nomination certificate through Express Entry or outside the selection system, a candidate will be required to submit a separate application for the Permanent Resident (PR) status of Canada to the IRCC.
The Northern Territory of Canada of Nunavut and Quebec does not participate in the federal PNP governments. In contrast, the governments of Quebec and Canada have concluded a series of agreements through which Quebec has established its own selection criteria for all economic immigrants with the intention of residing in Quebec.
