Provincial Nominee Program

PNP, which stands for Provincial Nominee Program, is one of the most popular immigration options. It fast tracks the immigration process for individuals seeking to immigrate to Canada as permanent residents. In addition, the nomination from a province gives a big boost of 600 points to your CRS score, thus making you eligible for an invitation to apply in the subsequent express entry draw.

 

 

The immigration objective, demographics, and economic needs of the province are kept in mind while designing the various
provincial nominee programs. The programs are for those foreign nationals who:

 

  • want to immigrate to Canada as permanent residents
  • intent to live in the respective province
  • has the requisite work experience, education, and other skills specific to that province or territory

  • International Graduates
  • Entrepreneurs and Investors

  • In-demand Occupations
  • Farm Streams

How to apply for Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)?

 

The PNP program works in two different ways.

 

  1. The first is the Express Entry Aligned stream, in which the province selects your express entry profile basis their eligibility criteria and then issues you a Provincial Nomination, resulting in an additional 600 to your Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This score ensures that you receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) under Express Entry.
