Consisting of 10 provinces and 3 territories, Canada is a diverse country with diverse needs. The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), is designed to allow those provinces and territories to prioritize their individual immigration and labour needs.
Key aspects of the PNP program include:
Your intent to live and work in the province or territory that you are applying to;
Your ability to become economically established in that province or territory by joining the labour market on a full-time basis;
Having sufficient settlement funds
Having appropriate qualifications, training, skills and experience for the job;
Having the Canadian Language Benchmark level required for the job
Receiving a Provincial Nomination is worth an additional 600 points towards your Express Entry application. With a total of 1200 points possible under Express Entry, having a Provincial Nomination will greatly increase your chances of being selected from the Pool of applicants and invited to apply for permanent residency.
For pursuing PNP through Express Entry, you will still need to meet the minimum requirements of the Express Entry Program you are applying through, be it the Federal Skilled Worker program, Federal Skilled Trades or the Canadian Experience Class.
Each Province and Territory is unique and will present many opportunities. For many of our clients, Canada’s PNP program is an excellent pathway to both enter into Canada and to secure a long-term future for themselves and their family.
As these opportunities and specific jobs within each province and territory can change quickly according to demand, having current up to date advice is crucial to ensure you are applying to the right province or territory, in the right industry and at the correct time.
