Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams are a key part of Canada’s immigration policy, with nearly 250,000 people expected to obtain Canadian permanent residence through a Provincial Nominee Program between 2021 and 2023.
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.
Emigrantz qualifies on top to assist in State nomination programs as we have tie-ups with the state governments of Australia. We can help you to acquire a skilled immigration visa from the Australian Government. State nomination is a program which nominates skilled immigrants who are willing to live and work in Australia and who have the skills and experience obligatory by the state. To receive a State nomination, you must have an occupation featured on the State Nominated Occupation List and meet all the state and federal Government’s eligibility requirements. We can help you to get state nomination since this is part of our immigration services.
Am I eligible for a Provincial Nominee Program?
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.
Each province and territory determines their own eligibility criteria for Provincial Nominee Programs. For example, one province might prioritize bringing in provincial nominees with experience in a certain occupation, while another province might prioritize bringing in provincial nominees with French-language experience. It depends on the needs of each specific province and territory.
In order to become a provincial nominee, applicants must show that they meet the set criteria. This will show that the applicant has the skills, education, and work experience to be able to make a positive contribution to the local economy and society. The province or territory will consider the application based on the needs of the specific province, as well as the applicant’s genuine intention to settle there.
Within each PNP, there are multiple sub-programs and categories, usually known as “streams”. You can find out which PNP streams and categories are open right now, in our PNP Canada Live Tracker, which includes a tool to help you find the right PNP stream for you.
Provincial Nominee Programs and Express Entry
Most provinces and territories have streams that are connected with the federal Express Entry selection system, through which “enhanced” nominations are available that award nominees 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points.
A provincial nomination is the single most valuable factor in the CRS, effectively guaranteeing that the candidate receives an Invitation to Apply (ITA) at a subsequent draw from the pool.
The CRS is a score out of 1,200 assigned to Express Entry candidates, which decides who should get an ITA for permanent residency. In almost every round of Express Entry draws, these 600 bonus points would guarantee that the applicant would receive an ITA.
Individuals who wish to apply for a provincial nomination under an enhanced PNP stream must first create an Express Entry profile and enter the pool.
We are qualified and experienced immigration consultants licensed by Government to assist you with the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) which allows Canadian provinces and territories to nominate people, who demand to settle in Canada and who are aspiring to settling in a certain province as well. All Canadian province and territory (except Nunavut and Quebec) have their own sole Provincial Nominee Program. Each PNP has at least one immigration stream that is associated with the federal immigration selection system. Provincial nominations allotted under aligned streams are known as ‘enhanced nominations. These are some of the immigration services offered by Emigrantz as part of PNP.
