Canada is a country with several provinces and territories. All these provinces have played a vital role in the economy and development of Canada. Most of the provinces in Canada have their own immigration program called, Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). A PNP of every state comprises separate rules and process requirements.
Through a PNP, provinces in Canada invite the skilled and talented immigrants, who they find suitable for their labor market and economy.
There are two pathways via which you can apply for a Canada PNP for your preferred province:
You can directly apply under a Provincial Nominee Program of your preferred province where you wish to live and work permanently. You have to follow the following steps:
You can register and submit your profile in the Express Entry pool so that different Canadian provinces can view and select your profile. If any of the provinces selects your profile, you will receive an invitation to apply for provincial nomination.
If you apply in a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and that province select your profile for allocation of provincial nomination, it will make your way for obtaining permanent residency in Canada in two ways.
Most of the PNPs have one Express Entry alightned stream. If you apply in the Express Entry Stream of a PNP and get selected, you become eligible to get 600 extra CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) points in Federal Express Entry system.
If you apply in Occupation in Demand (OID) or other such streams of a Provincial Nominee Program and remain successful, you get the privilege to apply for PR Visa directly to IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada).
Every province has certain process requirements to follow. In which PNP you can get selected depends on your profile and how closely you meet the requirements of a Canada PNP.
Some popular PNPs in Canada are:
SINP, OINP, NSNP, AINP, are largely popular among immigrants. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) with its easy language requirements and no job offer need, remains one of the easiest PNPs to apply and obtain the provincial nomination.
Every Provincial Nominee Program has a different set of process and eligibility requirements. A PNP invites the applications from the skilled and talented people from overseas, under its different streams. As an applicant, you must confirm details and apply in a particular stream of a PNP. Now, wait for the ITA to apply for provincial nomination.
Once ITA is received, you submit the complete application for provincial nomination and if all verifications go fine, you get the same from that particular province. In case of express entry stream, an applicant needs to have an account in the express entry system. A province scans the profiles in express entry pool and accordingly invite most suitable candidates to apply in a particular PNP stream.
Well, Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) launch their invitation rounds periodically. However, most of the time there is no set agenda or schedule set to invite the applicant on a particular day.
Moreover, you can visit the Canada PR Avenue website regularly to know about the currently open PNPs, the latest process requirements and rule changes with regards to the same.
