What is the Provincial Nominee Program

Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program [PNP] is regarded to be a fast-tracked route to Canada’s permanent residence.

Fetching 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System [CRS] points, a provincial nomination by any of the provinces/territories participating in the PNP boosts an individual’s profile to the top of the Express Entry pool.

As per the Canadian government, the PNP is for workers that –

Have the education, skills and work experience to make a contribution to the economy of a particular province or territory,
Have the intention to live in that province or territory, and
Want to take up Canadian permanent residence

With the exception of Quebec and Nunavut, all other provinces and territories – that is, 9 provinces and 2 territories – in Canada are a part of the PNP.

PNP Provinces PNP Territories
Alberta Northwest Territories
British Columbia Yukon
Manitoba
New Brunswick
Newfoundland and Labrador
Nova Scotia
Ontario
Prince Edward Island
Saskatchewan

While Quebec has its own program for the induction of immigrants to the province, Nunavut has no immigration programs as such.

Along with having their own requirements, each of the provinces and territories taking part in the PNP has its own immigration programs specifically targeting certain groups. These are referred to as ‘streams’.

A stream might target –

Skilled workers
Semi-skilled workers
Business people
Students

Altogether, the PNP offers around 80 different streams for a potential immigrant to Canada.
