Provincial Nominee Program

Provincial Nominee Program

The Provincial Nominee Program was launched by the Canadian government in 1988 to welcome skilled workers from all over the world to help strengthen their economies. Under the PNP program, Provinces in Canada nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and who are interested in settling in a particular province. The only exceptions are Quebec and Nunavut. Quebec has its own selection criteria for immigration.

Express Entry through Provincial Nominee Program

Provincial Nominee Program is a great way to receive a Canadian permanent residency. Each Provincial Nominee Program (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 Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) stream directly and once you obtain a provincial nomination, the federal government will process your permanent residence application.

How does the Provincial Nominee Program work?

The program is for skilled workers who aim for Canada PR. Skilled workers should have the required education and work experience to be eligible in the stream of a particular province.

Each province and territory have its own streams and requirements and each program stream may target students, business people, skilled workers, and semi-skilled workers.

How to Apply for Provincial Nominee Program?

The application process depends on which program you are applying for. Either you should apply through the Non-Express Entry process or through the Express Entry. Either way, the candidate must have passed a medical exam and get a police certificate.

Application through Non-Express Entry Process

In the non-express entry process, you can directly apply to the province or territory for nomination under a non-Express Entry stream. Each province has its own eligibility requirements and you must have met all the requirements before applying. If you are nominated for the program you can apply for Canada PR online.

Application through Express Entry Process

There are two ways to apply through the express entry process.

You can contact the province or territory and apply for a nomination under their Express Entry stream. If the province or territory agrees to nominate you, you create an Express Entry profile (or update your profile if you already have one) and show you have been nominated. You will receive a nomination through your account, which you accept electronically.

The second way is that You can create an Express Entry profile and show the provinces and territories you are interested in. If a province or territory sends you a “notification of interest” to your account, you contact them directly and apply to their express entry stream. If you are nominated, they will offer it to you through your account, and you accept it electronically.

    The eligibility and CRS score requirement vary depending on different provinces. One of the easiest Provincial Nominee Programs to get a Canada PR nomination is the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP). The applicants who have scored at least 67 immigration points out of 100 on the points system qualify to apply in the stream.

    The processing time depends on the program and province you have applied. Hence the processing time also varies. However, it may take up to one year.

    The main advantage of obtaining a PNP is that it adds 600 points to the CRS score required for express entry eligibility. The visa process of an applicant with a provincial nomination is quicker and it increases the chance of obtaining Canada PR.
