What Are Provincial Nominee Program?

Each province, apart from Quebec and Nunavut, operate several PNP streams. These streams are designed by the provinces to help meet their unique immigration goals, so the eligibility criteria and application procedures vary. 

However, PNPs are a popular option because they can be the easiest pathway to Canadian permanent residence. All decisions regarding Canadian permanent residence must be approved at the national level by the federal government, so Canada’s provinces cannot approve permanent resident status on their own.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is a Canadian program that allows individuals to apply for permanent residency through nomination by one of the provinces or territories. There are two ways you can go about applying: contacting your preferred province/territory and submitting an Express Entry profile, or creating a new Express Entry profile with contact information on behalf of all desired provinces/territories. Once nominated either way, you will need to accept their offer in order to be eligible for immigration as they hand-pick applicants based on eligibility criteria such as employment skills and language proficiency.

Paper-based applications take much longer to process than electronic applications submitted through Express Entry. While the average processing time for a permanent resident application submitted through Express Entry is 6 months, paper-submitted and processed in an average of 18 months.

Express Entry was developed by CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada), and has become a vital part of the Canadian economy in recent years as it allows more people from around the world who are interested in staying permanently or temporarily reside within its borders. The program’s goal is not only about bringing “the best talent” into the country but also maximizing benefits for all Canadians – both economically and culturally speaking!

To apply as a provincial nominee, you must: meet the minimum requirements of one of the province or territory’s non-Express Entry streams and then be nominated under that stream.

While the average processing time for a permanent resident application submitted through Express Entry is 6 months, a paper-based application is processed in an average of 18 months.
