Benefits of the Provincial Nominee Program

  • Each province and territory participating in the PNP program has its unique requirements and immigrant target groups. To apply for Provincial nomination, you must assess if you fit within the specified target group.
  • Provinces primarily seek immigrants who can address their local labor gaps. Matching your skill set to the province's required skills increases your chances of acceptance.
  • Similar to the Express Entry program, the PNP operates on a points-based system.
  • If you meet the required points and eligibility criteria, you'll receive an Invitation to Apply from the provincial government.
  • PNP points are calculated based on parameters akin to those used in Express Entry, assessing your adaptability and suitability for provincial living.
  • Upon obtaining provincial nomination, you receive an additional 600 points in your Express Entry profile, significantly enhancing your chances in subsequent draws.
  • After obtaining Canada PR via PNP and Express Entry, you're typically required to reside in the province for a specified duration, commonly around two years.
  • Post this specified period, you're free to relocate to any other province if you wish.
  • Some provinces may mandate a job offer as a prerequisite for provincial nomination eligibility.
