Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

  • What is Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Express Entry?

    Canada’s Constitution divides immigration authority between the federal government and provinces/territories.

    The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) lets provinces nominate immigrants interested in settling there, except Nunavut and Quebec, which have their own systems. PNP aims to distribute immigration benefits across Canada.

    PNPs offer streams aligned with the federal Express Entry system, called ‘enhanced nominations’, giving candidates an extra 600 points and faster processing. Alternatively, applicants can apply directly to a PNP stream and, upon nomination, have their permanent residence application processed by the federal government.

  • How do Provincial nominee programs (PNP) work?

    IRCC primarily aims PNP’s at individuals who :

    • – Have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of a specific province or territory.

    • – Intend to permanently settle in that province or territory, and

    • – Want to become Canadian Permanent Residents (PR).

Each province and territory has their own PNP streams and requirements.
