Provincial Nominee Program Updates
Many foreign nationals from around the world classify Canada as one very unique and progressive country to immigrate to. Additionally, many of these foreign nationals specifically research into provinces and territories within Canada that they would like to immigrate to. In most cases, this research also includes extensive searching for employment. As of recently, there has been an abundance of immigration activity within the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). This comes as no surprise since many of Canada’s provinces and territories welcome a wide range of entrepreneurs, workers and graduates. Therefore, in this article, I will address the updates to the Provincial Nominee Program and the updates based on each province and territory.
What is the Provincial Nominee Program
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNPs) was intended for provinces and territories of Canada to be able to nominate certain individuals for permanent residency in Canada based on their skills, work experience and many other factors. Additionally, these individuals must show an interest in the specific province or territory that nominates then and must ensure that they have the ability to settle within that province/territory’s labour market. The Provincial Nominee Program also has enhanced streams that coincide with the Express Entry program. For instance, an enhanced nomination will allow the candidate to receive an additional 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Additionally, these candidates will most likely receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in the next draw from the Express Entry pool.
