What is a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)?

Through the Express Entry program; which helps valuable, highly skilled foreign nationals immigrate to Canada as permanent residents, there are various “provincial nominee programs.” Provinces and territories in Canada, with the exception of Quebec, can chose to nominate individuals and persons with certain skills and certain qualities to immigrate to Canada through the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP). This allows provincial governments to have better control of the services and employment sectors in their region, and ensure the employment market remains driven and competitive. The idea is the individuals who are being nominated into these programs, have skills or qualities which will be valuable to the Canadian labor market, and the economy.

How Do the Provincial Nominee Programs Work?

Each province and territory has a special “stream” under which they nominate foreign nationals to immigrate to their province. A “stream” is a program that targets certain groups depending on the qualifications and skills the individual has, which are necessary for a certain occupation. For example, a program in any given province or territory may target students of certain education, business people specialized in certain sectors, skilled workers or semi-skilled works.

Attracting Immigrants to Rural Areas of Canada

Attracting Immigrants to Rural Areas of Canada

Like to immigrate to Canada?

When you think of Canada what do you think of? It is highly likely to think of one of a major city such as Toronto or Vancouver. In Canada, we are multicultural and embrace that aspect of our country. Recently, it has become a recurring issue that many newcomers, when immigrating to Canada, decide to reside in the major cities of the country such as Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and/or Edmonton. This has become a major problem for the Canadian economy. In order to keep Canada’s economy growing, we need to distribute immigrants across the country evenly so that we have more young adults. Canada requires young people in its economy because our current economy is growing but also at the same time aging. Due to this conflict, more and more immigrants’ mindsets are focused and set on living in one particular popular urban city in Canada. Many of these immigrants are blind sighted towards the more rural parts that Canada has to offer. In the long run, having foreign immigrants reside in only major cities will be very crucial for our country.

Why you should move to Rural Areas of Canada

In order to solve this problem, many rural cities have established ways of possibly changing this trend. One rural city in particular, Morden (in Manitoba) is using the MCDII method to attract foreign immigrants to their small town of 9,000 people. MCDII is the connotation for Morden community Driven Immigration Initiative. The Morden Community Driven Immigration Initiative is, likewise its name, an initiative/movement in attracting newcomers to their small town. In order to make sure the newcomers remain in Morden, they have to meet specific requirements when choosing to reside there. Some of the requirements to reside in Morden include that the immigrating individual(s) must have at least a one year full-time or equivalent paid work experience in the previous 10 years as a skilled worker or they must qualify for an arranged employment in Canada with a Labour Market Impact Assessment. A Labour Market Impact Assessment, also known in short for LMIA, is an application that an eligible employer has to complete if they want/need to hire a foreign employee/worker. The possible employee is required to pass a minimum requirement of the capability to speak one of Canada's official languages, English or French. An LMIA is quite pricey, but if completed correctly and successfully, it will be completely worth it in the end.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.
