PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM (PNP)

Most provinces and territories in Canada can nominate immigrants through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). These immigrants must have the skills; education and work experience to contribute to the economy of that province or territory and must want to live there. Each province and territory has its own “streams” (immigration programs that target certain groups)

To apply for the PNP you must:

apply to a province or territory for a nomination, be nominated by that province or territory, then Apply to IRCC to become a permanent resident.

After the province or territory approves your application, the next step is to apply for permanent residence.
