Canada Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) empowers the provinces of Canada to nominate the skilled professional with experience in technology, education, finance, healthcare, marketing and sales who wishes to immigrate and settle in a particular province of Canada. Under PNP a Canadian province or territory will nominate individuals. Each province has their own eligibility criteria which an immigrant need to go through for a Canadian Permanent Residency. There are plenty of opportunities for the immigrants due to the shortage of skilled workers. And the PNP when linked to Express Entry does not require any mandatory job offer.
Provincial Nominee Programs across all provinces is a two step process since all the final immigration decisions are made by the federal government and not the provincial government.
1. Apply to the province for provincial nomination:
Find out the eligibility – Using PNP live tracker, check for the available PNPs and determine the eligibility among the many available options.
PNP Application – Submit the application to the province or territory. If you are eligible, you will receive an official provincial nomination certificate
2. Submit application to the IRCC for Canadian PR visa.
Express Entry System: If you were nominated through an Express Entry –aligned PNP, apply for the PR through Express Entry which again is of two ways:
After you are nominated by the province or territory, create an Express Entry profile or update your profile if it already exists
Create an Express Entry profile and then submit the application for the PNP. When the province sends a notification of interest, contact them and then apply through Express Entry system.
Paper-base application: The processing time is usually longer than through the Express Entry system. Once you get nominated by the provinces through non-Express Entry system, apply for Canada PR visa.
