Provincial Nominee Program
The Provincial Nominee Program or PNP is a potential pathway to receive a Canadian permanent residency. Each PNP has one stream that is aligned with the Express Entry System, known as ‘Enhanced Nominations’. The advantage of enhanced PNP is that they award an extra CRS score of 600 points, guaranteeing PR to the applicant through express entry. Also, another stream under the PNP is known as ‘the base stream’. Here, you can apply to a PNP stream directly and once you obtain a provincial nomination, the federal government will process your permanent residence application.
