PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAMS
IMMIGRATE TO A SPECIFIC PROVINCE THROUGH A PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM
If you intend to immigrate to a specific province because you are already working there or because you have an offer of employment from a Canadian employer, or a family member, you may be able to apply through a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Each province and territory targets certain groups of candidates according to their labour market needs: students, skilled workers, semi-skilled workers, business people, etc. Many streams combine different parameters and requirements to choose the most beneficial candidates for their province.
PNP Application Process
While you apply for a Permanent Residence through PNP, the provincial program restricts you from working or living outside that province. Usually, the candidate will benefit from a work permit while the permanent residence application is being processed.
After a province nominates you, you’ll have to apply to the federal government to assess your application. This final assessment is based on admissibility factors such as medical condition, security, and criminality.
To find out if you meet the requirements of any Canadian program, you can complete the form below or return the detailed questionnaire for a free assessment and a no-obligation quote.
