Every single province and territory out of the thirteen in Canada has its own immigration program. Each immigration program is operated individually by its respective province and territory. As the provinces are known for their uniqueness in economies and different population, so are the immigration programs designed to suit their demographic and economic needs. These programs are Provincial Nominee Programs or PNP.

What is a Provincial Nominee Program – PNP?

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) are immigration programs operated by each province in Canada. Each province designs its own immigration programs to meet its unique goal. Therefore the eligibility criteria and application procedures for each program differ based on the province to which they belong. The Quebec province does not have a Provincial Nominee Program. The popularity of the PNP is on the rise as they are considered to be one of the fastest means of achieving Permanent Residence in Canada.

At the National level, it is the Federal Government that approves the decisions pertaining to the Permanent Residence. The Provinces in Canada do not have the authority to decide on approving Permanent Residence status on their own. This is the main reason for referring to the Provincial programs as “nominee” programs.

Who Can Apply?

These PNP are designed for the workers who can fulfill the following conditions.

  • A worker who can contribute to the economy of a specific province as he/she possesses the skill, education and the experience needed to do so.
  • A worker who wishes to live in the province and
  • A worker who wants to be the permanent resident of Canada.

It is interesting to note that each province and territory has its own programs to target certain groups called “streams”. For instance: provinces and territories may target the stream of:

  • Students
  • Skilled workers
  • Business people
  • Semi-skilled workers

Application Options:

There are two ways in which you can apply for permanent residence. The mode of application depends on the province that you wish to apply to. There is a paper based process and an online process through the Express Entry. Passing a medical exam and police verification certificate is crucial to this process.

The paper based process consists of procedures where:

  • You apply to the province or territory under the non- Express Entry stream for nomination
  • You meet the requirements of the nominating province/li>
  • Once nominated, you submit a paper application for permanent residence to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC)
  • It is mandatory to pass the medical exam and get a police verification certificate
  • The application processing time is longer in comparison to Express Entry 

There are 2 ways to apply for Express Entry process:

  • You contact the province or territory and apply for nomination under the Express Entry stream
  • If you receive a nomination then create an Express Entry profile to show your nomination

OR

  • Create an Express Entry profile and show that you are interested in the province or territory
  • If you receive a “notification of interest” to your account from the province or territory, you need to directly contact them
  • You apply to their Express Entry stream:
  • If nominated, the offer will be made by province on your online account and you can render your acceptance electronically
  • In both cases, you are required to comply with the following:
  • Meet the eligibility requirements of the province/territory
  • Submit Express Entry profile showing that you meet the minimum criteria
  • If you receive an Invitation to Apply, submit an electronic application to IRCC

Choosing a Province or Territory:

It is crucial to contact the province by following the instructions on their website to receive a nomination from a province or a territory. The following are the names of the various Provincial Nominee Programs.

  • Alberta Immigration Nominee Program (AINP)
  • British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)
  • Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP)
  • New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP)

I’ve been in Canada for the last 12 years, my file was quite complicated throughout the years. I met my wife in 2017 and we did get married in 2019. We tried a lot of consultants and lawyers to file for my sponsorship application for PR but most of them either tried to scare us or misguided us We then decided to take matter in our own hands and tried doing our own paperwork but given my immigration history and our racial differences with our families(I am Indian and my wife is Filipina) it was quite difficult for us to do so and no lawyer or consultant was showing us the right path for filing the application. Then in 2021 we met Canoz Visa services in Brampton, we spoke to Harsimrat regarding our situation and she explained everything to us very well, we gave her our paperwork what we did, she took that and made changes to her knowledge while every other consultant or lawyer was not even willing to see what we did and within 10 months, I received my PR status. These guys are the best of the best and above all very accommodating and understanding. She has gained my and my family’s business for a very long time. Thank you for all your help. Ashish & Kyla

Harsimrat helped my husband to get the travel document for 3 years after his PR expired and wanted to come and meet us . Everyone here in Canada suggested that my husband needs visitor visa and he needs to surrender his PR but when we met Harsimrat she told us to apply for the travel document rather than surrendering PR . She is so good in her job. If anyone asks me who is the right person to connect to regarding the visas I recommend her name. They are the best and very helpful
