Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

Under Provincial Nominee Programs, provinces and territories in Canada can nominate individuals and families who wish to settle in their province or territory based on criteria set by the province.

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) are a key part of Canada’s immigration policy, with more than 200,000 people expected to obtain Canadian permanent residence through a Provincial Nominee Program between 2019 and 2021.

Provincial Nominee Programs are the fastest-growing economic Canadian immigration pathway. Over recent years, the federal government has gradually increased provinces’ annual allocations for their respective PNPs, showing the increasing importance of these programs within the overall Canadian immigration landscape.

Requirements before you apply for Canada Permanent Residence—

In Canada, all final immigration decisions are made by the federal government, not the provincial government. For this reason, PNPs are a two-part process. First, you have to apply to the province for your provincial nomination. Then, if you are approved by the province, you have to submit a second application to the federal government for your Canadian permanent resident status.

Eligibility conditions—

The eligibility condition for Provincial Nominee Program depends on whether you apply through Express Entry or paper-based process, i.e. non-Express Entry process.

You have to meet the minimum requirements of the respective Canada territory or province’s Express Entry Provincial Nomination Program stream; and

You must get selected under the respective immigration stream;

You have to make an Express Entry profile and also show a proof that you are fulfilling the requirement of minimum eligibility criteria for Canada Express Entry.

You must get nomination under the concerned stream;
