Canada Express Entry-Provincial Nominee Programs
PNP Canada is the vital fast-track option for getting Canada immigration. These programs are meant to allow the Canadian provinces and territories for the nomination of the people willing to migrate to Canada and have exceptional skills that are in demand. It is aimed at bringing permanent residence to the people with appropriate conditions. Candidates with extra caliber are considered for nomination and issued with a nomination certificate. This eventually boosts their score with 600 additional points and helps with a faster PR visa.
Each Canadian province* and two territories have their personalized PNP. Each Provincial Nominee Program is designed in a way to settle the competent people into the province/territory who can efficiently contribute to the community. The agreements are signed up with IRCC (Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada) allowing the selection of immigrants to meet the pre-selected requirements. The following provinces have their PNP linked with the Canada Express Entry:
- British Columbia
- New Brunswick
- New Foundland and Labrador
- Northwest Territories
- Nova Scotia
- Prince Edward Island
Before submission of the application for Canadian Immigration, the nominee is required to receive a Provincial Nomination Certification from the particular province/territory. There is an exclusive and separate application made to Citizenship and Immigration Canada for your PR application for Canada. The processing time for PNP Canada is different for every province/territory.
*Quebec is an exception. It doesn’t participate in the Provincial Nominee Program. The selection criteria are unique for the economic immigrants looking to reside in Quebec.
Canada’s Multi-Year Immigration Plan
Canada will have increased number of immigrants in the upcoming years through their economic programs and family sponsorship. The governments will use these programs to get the immigrants in more effective manner.
