Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) has become quite a popular program to apply and obtain Canadian permanent residency in last few years. With increasing PNP target every year, more and more people are able to get the Canadian PR through provincial nomination from one or another Canadian province.
The PR received through a provincial program is no different than the PR Received through express entry system or other such program in terms of rights and privileges. However, still the applicants who obtain the PR approval based on a nomination from a particular province, often remain confused about their rights and privileges. The biggest concern of such applicant is about their right to move to another Canadian province or region, if they have been nominated by a particular province.
The rights with regards to immigration in Canada have been shared equally between the federal and the provincial governments of Canada. In 1981, the government of Quebec obtained exclusive rights to form its own immigration policies and program, subsequently, all provinces and territories employed their own programs (now known as Provincial Nominee Programs) to select the skilled and talented immigrants from overseas countries for their respective provinces.

Although the immigration and mobility rights of permanent residents are described in the section 6 of the charter. However, these rights are only come in to effect when an immigration actually get the permanent residence status.Paragraph 87(2) (b) of the IRPR (Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations) explains that a foreign national is a member of the PN class if they intend to reside in the province that has nominated them. Here is the stepwise description of the PR rights of provincial immigrants.
In last few years, various Canadian provinces looking for immigrants to meet skill shortage issues and taking various steps to attract and retain the immigrants in their respective provinces. The Canada PR aspirants who couldn’t get invitation to apply through federal express entry system due to low point score, find Canadian PNPs, as the best pathway to obtain Canada PR through provincial nomination.
