Provincial Nominee Program
If you do not have enough points to be selected under the Express Entry process, or if you are not eligible in any other category, the Provincial Nominee Program route may be viable for you.
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows Canadian provinces and territories to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and settle in a particular province. The only exceptions are Nunavut and Quebec. Quebec has the authority to establish their own selection criteria for economic immigration.
How Does The Program Work?
There are two ways to be nominated:
- Candidates first submit a profile under the Express Entry System with their CRS score (calculate here), then apply to a PNP program. This is a separate application where you submit an expression on interest to the specific province. You will remain in the Express Entry pool for a year, or until you are selected to apply for Permanent Residence, which ever comes first. After the province approves yourthePNP application (within 3-4 months), you will be given 600 points to add to your CRS score. The large amount of points given to you guarantees that you will be drawn within the next Express Entry draw.
