Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) allow Canadian provinces and territories to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and who are interested in settling in a particular province, based on that province’s needs.
Each Canadian province and territory (except Nunavut and Quebec) has its own unique Provincial Nominee Program. Each PNP has at least one immigration stream that is aligned with the federal Express Entry immigration selection system.
Provincial nominations issued under these Express Entry-aligned streams are known as “enhanced nominations” and award Express Entry candidates an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. An aspiring candidate must meet the minimum requirements of Express Entry in order to qualify.
With more than 80 provincial immigration streams, discovering the Canadian immigration pathway that best suits you may be challenging. This is where we come in. Our knowledge and expertise will guide your application to its best results.
Provincial Nominee Programs across Canada are actively seeking and retaining eligible foreign nationals by making the process of applying for Canadian permanent residence more accessible.
A provincial nomination certificate can be issued via Express Entry or outside the selection system, a nominee is still required to submit a separate application for Permanent Resident (PR) status to IRCC.
