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 local employer, 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 markets needs: students, skilled workers, semi-skilled workers, business people, etc. There is a large variety of streams that combine different parameters, requirements and procedures (paper-based and online applications are used) in order to choose the candidates that are most beneficial for their province.
PNP Application Process
Applying through a provincial program restricts you from working or living outside the province that facilitated you your permanent residence option. Usually, the candidate will benefit from a work permit while the permanent residence application is being processed.
After you are nominated by the province, you will have to submit an application to the federal government who will assess you based on admissibility factors such as medical condition, security, and criminality.
