Latest PNP draw July 2023
Three provinces in Canada, Ontario, British Columbia, and Prince Edward Island have invited candidates in the latest round of the PNP draw July 2023
The provincial nominee program or PNP is a great way 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, which will guarantee PR to the applicant through express entry. Also, there is another stream under the PNP, 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.
Provinces in Canada have been asking for more independent authority over economic immigration, like Quebec. Quebec is the only province in Canada that has total authority over the selection of economic immigrants. Acknowledging the demand of provinces, IRCC is taking a new initiative by launching a Provincial Immigration Levels Plan. This plan will welcome more immigrants and the provinces will become more capable of providing adequate jobs, housing, and other important infrastructure for newcomers.
