Provincial Programs - Immigration through PNP


If you believe your CRS isn’t up to par, you can use the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). PNPs are provincial/territorial governments’ immigration systems in which they select applicants who they believe are best suited to meet demand in their province.

Some jurisdictions, but not all, need a full-time work offer from a Canadian employer. Some provinces process applications electronically, while others continue to rely on the old-fashioned snail mail system. Some provinces prioritize applicants whose occupations fit under a specific NOC.

If you earn a provincial nomination, your CRS will grow by 600 points, guaranteeing us an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in the next draw. If your Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is less than 410, you have no choice except to use PNPs.

The following can help to learn more about Provincial Nominations:

  • Alberta

The Canada Alberta PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) accepts two types of applicants: the Alberta Express Entry Stream and the Alberta Opportunity Stream.

Alberta Express Entry welcomes people who have work experience in occupations that have been in high demand in the Alberta labor market and either have an Express Entry Profile in the pool or apply directly to the Alberta PNP. Age, education, work experience, English language skills, and other factors will be considered.

Unless you are a graduate of a Canadian post-secondary institution or have an immediate relative living in Canada, you have a greater chance of getting chosen if you have prior job experience in Alberta.

  • British Columbia 

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Scheme (BCPNP) is a program that the British Columbia government uses to choose immigration candidates to nominate to the Canadian government for some of them to become permanent citizens of the province and contribute to its economic growth.

One of Canada’s PNPs is the BCPNP. The program is quite diversified, with two categories for skilled workers and international graduates in Canada and post-graduates in British Columbia: Express Entry BC and Skills Immigration, one more for entrepreneurs, with ten possible immigration streams.

  • Manitoba

Manitoba maintains a low unemployment rate, a healthy and high-quality lifestyle, and makes a difference in career options. To satisfy the needs of its labor market, the Manitoba PNP welcomes qualified employees from other countries who have the experience and talent that businesses in the region require. It also allows workers who have previously worked or lived in Manitoba to live there.

  • New Brunswick

The Provincial Nominee Program in New Brunswick (NB), like other provincial programs, encourages talented professionals to settle in the Canadian province and contribute to its economic growth. It invites skilled people through various streams, including Express Entry, Skilled Workers with Family Support, and Skilled Workers with Employer Support.

  • Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is an excellent choice for permanent residency candidates in Canada because it is a place rich in opportunity. Several types of people are eligible for PR in Nova Scotia. Physicians, Entrepreneurs, International Graduate Entrepreneurs, Qualified Personnel, Demand Express Entry, and Experience Express Entry are one of the Nova Scotia Skilled Labor Market Priorities.

  • Ontario Immigration Nominee Program

 Ontario is one of Canada’s significant provinces, including the major cities of Toronto and Ottawa, and therefore a land rich in potential. The Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP) selects workers from all over the world for permanent residence and employment in Ontario based on their talents and experience.

  • Prince Edward Island

The Prince Edward PNP focuses on three types of skilled workers: those who apply through Express Entry, those who relate through the business category, and those who pertain through the labor category. Prince Edward PNP has qualifications that may be significantly different from the other provincial nominee programs because it is one of Canada’s smaller provinces and is heavily agriculturally based.
