What is the Provincial Nominee Program?

The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is the most popular way for skilled workers to immigrate to Canada. Almost every province and territory has a PNP to welcome skilled workers from all over the world and help their economies. The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows Canadian provinces and territories to nominate people who want to immigrate to Canada and settle in a specific province.

The federal government must approve all decisions regarding Canadian permanent residence at the national level, Canada’s provinces cannot grant permanent resident status on their own. This is why provincial programs are referred to as “nominee” programs.

A successful PNP applicant will be nominated by the province to apply for permanent residence with the federal government. This means that applying for a PNP to immigrate to Canada is always the first step in a two-step process. An interested immigrant must first be approved at the provincial level before applying to the federal level.

Applicants for Provincial Nominee Programs have to have the talents, training, and relevant qualifications to benefit both the province or territory’s economy, as well as a desire to reside there. Provincial Nomination is another significant rapid option for obtaining permanent resident status in Canada.

Canada’s provinces and territories (excluding Quebec, which has its selection method) have agreed with Citizenship and Immigration Canada to enable them to recommend immigrants via the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (also known as BC PNP), Ontario Provincial Nominee Program, Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, and Alberta Provincial Nominee Program, Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program are the most well-known Provincial Programs in Canada. The following Provinces are currently participating in the Provincial Nominee Program:


New Brunswick

Nova Scotia


British Columbia (BC PNP)

Newfoundland and Labrador




Northwest Territories

Prince Edward Island

Who is eligible for 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.

Applicants must demonstrate that they meet the set criteria in order to become a provincial nominee. This demonstrates that the applicant possesses the necessary skills, education, and work experience to positively contribute to the local economy and society. The province or territory will evaluate the application based on the needs of the province in question and the applicant’s genuine desire to settle there.

How Provincial Nominee Program Works?

Under each Provincial Nominee Program, each province and territory has its “streams” (immigration programs that identify particular demographics) and requirements. Provinces & territories might, for example, emphasize



Talented employees

Semi-skilled workers

inside a program stream. Applicants who have family members, close relatives, or family friends who live in a certain province are granted considerable benefits in certain provinces.

Application Options for Provincial Nominee Program

Depending on whatever stream of the Provincial Nominee Program you are applying to, how you will apply will vary. You might need to submit your application on paper or online using Express Entry.

You will be required to acquire a police check and pass a medical examination as part of the procedure (certificate). No matter where they intend to live in Canada, everyone is required to get these checks.

Paper-based process:

For nomination under a non-Express Entry stream, you submit an application to the province or territory.

You must be eligible according to the province's nomination guidelines.

After being nominated, you must send Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada a paper application for permanent residency.

A medical exam and a police check are requirements (certificate). No matter where in Canada you want to live, everyone is required to undergo these checks.

Application processing times are longer than through Express Entry.

Express Entry process:

Option One

Your Express Entry and choose which provinces you want to visit.

A province can issue you a "notice of interest" on the Express Entry profile; you could then apply towards the province on your nomination.

Assuming your nomination request is successful, this same province may send a digital acceptance notice to one's Express Entry profile. Individuals will gain an extra 600 points upon approval.

Unless you are asked to apply, individuals will use the Express Entry gateway to complete an online permanent residence application.

Option Two

Appeal towards the province for the nomination through the Express Entry system.

Whereas if the province chooses to nominate you, build an Express Entry portfolio or edit an existing portfolio to reflect your nomination. You will earn 600 extra points.

When you are asked to apply, you would use your Express Entry interface to file an online permanent residence application.
