The Canada PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) is a key pathway for immigration to Canada. The people, who aspire to immigrate to and settle in a specific Canadian province, can apply in the respective PNP Canada programs. Each province has a collaboration with Canada’s federal government or IRCC (Immigration Citizenship Refugee Canada) allows the respective provinces to choose permanent residents for their own province.
The PNPs allows the different Canadian provinces to select the immigrant, who are appropriate for its labour market and economy and subsequently, nominate them for Canadian permanent residency. Every province selects the foreign skilled workers, based on its own needs, criteria and parameters and hence each provinces has different set of requirements as well.
The provincial programs are different from the mainstream federal immigration programs of Canada. Depending on the specific provincial programs, you get many benefits as an applicant, i.e.
If you apply in any of the PNP Canada (See bottom of the page for the list) and get selected, you get a nomination from that particular province, which makes you eligible to apply for permanent residency in Canada.
There are two basic pathways to apply for a provincial program of a particular province in Canada:
⇒ Apply to a PNP Canada directly: You have chosen a province to settle, you can directly apply in its Provincial Nominee Program. Here are the steps you need to follow in direct PNP application:
On receipt of the application, IRCC usually does the formalities, i.e. verification of the medical and character certifications of a candidate, etc. And second
⇒ Apply via Express Entry System: If you register on Express entry and make it to the Express entry pool, your profile can be viewed and selected by the different provinces or territories of Canada. If your profile is picked by any of the province, you will get invitation to get in touch with the province to be considered for their program. If you are invited in such a way by a province, you become eligible to get an online ITA for Permanent residency visa, based on the nomination/invitation from the province.
Well, this is the most common question every applicants asks more than often. Express entry system is largest and most popular immigration system of the maple leaf country. It assess the profile of the applicants based on their total points scored based on age, education, work experience, language skills, etc. criteria. If your point score is high enough (442 CRS points as per latest EE draw launched on February 21) you will get invitation to apply from IRCC.
However, if your CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) is low, you can plan to apply in any of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Many PNPs accept the applicant even with low CRS score. For instance, Ontario accepts the applicant with CRS score 400 points or above. Canadian Provinces also invite the applicants from express entry pool, under Express Entry Stream of Canada PNP, based on CRS score and eligibility.
The Express Entry aligned stream is the stream aligned with federal express entry system. This stream allows the Canadian provinces to select the candidates from express entry pool and notify them to apply for nomination.
If an applicant applies and get selected, he/she becomes eligible to get the provincial nomination and subsequently, receives 600 additional CRS points in federal express entry system. Such huge addition of CRS points ensures that an applicant receive ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canadian PR from IRCC in the subsequent draw of federal Express Entry System.
There are various nomination program of the provinces, which invite the applicants and subsequently nominate the selected applicants for Canadian permanent Residency. A few largely popular provincial programs are:
The French or English proficiency test, i.e. IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is key selection parameter in Canada immigration system. The Immigration authorities verify the English proficiency level of an applicant based on their IELTS Test result. Hence, ILTS is a globally recognized and accepted English langue proficiency test.
