Candidates who meet province s eligibility requirements are the ones who will get selected by Canada’s provinces and territories under the federal Express Entry system, as it is one of the key systems that paves the path for foreign skilled workers towards obtaining Canadian permanent residency status.

Following are the key streams managed under the federal Express Entry pool:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Class
  • Federal Skilled Trades Class
  • Canadian Experience Class

With the onset of May, major streams of Canadian Province have issued more than 2,000 ITAs to express entry candidates for a provincial nomination, including:

  • British Columbia
  • Alberta
  • Saskatchewan
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Nova Scotia
  • Manitoba
  • Ontario

This rise in PNP invites is largely due to increasing of 6,000 more admissions in annual nomination target of 2019, i.e. 61,000 in comparison to 2018’s target of 55,000 admissions.

As per senior partner of the Campbell, Cohen Canadian immigration law firm David Cohen, "Nobody can accuse Canada’s provincial nominee programs of being boring and the past few weeks have provided ample reasons why this is the case,”.

He also stated that “More importantly, PNPs are exhibiting a new level of transparency as to the kind of candidates they are after. This information is vital and allows immigration candidates to know which provinces may be looking for their specific skills and experience.
