Received Canada PR through PNP? Know your right to move anywhere in Canada

Canada's Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) has become a popular program to apply and obtain Canadian permanent residency in the last few years. With increasing PNP target every year, more and more people can get the Canadian PR through provincial nomination from one or another Canadian province.

The PR received through a provincial program is no different from the PR Received through express entry system or other such programs regarding rights and privileges. However, the applicants who obtain the PR approval based on a nomination from a particular province often remain confused about their rights and privileges. Such an applicant's biggest concern is about their right to move to another Canadian province or region if a particular province has nominated them.

Immigration program and policies of Canadian Provinces

Federal and the provincial governments of Canada equally share the rights regarding immigration in Canada. In 1981, the government of Quebec obtained exclusive rights to form its immigration policies and program. Subsequently, all provinces and territories employed their programs (now known as Provincial Nominee Programs) to select the skilled and talented immigrants from overseas countries for their respective provinces.

However, to be specific, what are rule and regulations when a province nominate a particular immigrant to get PR in its province? One must want to know his/her obligations of regarding settlement in that very province.

Section 6 of the Canadian Charter or the Constitution Act, 1982, describes the permanent residents in detail. It gives fundamental rights to the Canadians (Citizens and permanent residents) in relations with government at all levels and predicaments all legislative assemblies (provincial/territorial) in Canada encompassing the federal legislature, the Parliament of Canada. Section 6 of the Canadian Charter and freedom gives Canadian citizens and permanent residents the right to live and work in any part of Canada.

What Does Section 6 of the Canadian Charter say?

Find below the key features of Section 6:

(1) Every Canadian citizen has the right to enter, stay in and leave Canada.

(2) Every Canadian citizen and permanent resident of Canada has the right:

  • To move to and take up residence in any province
  • To pursue the gaining of a livelihood in any province.

How Provincial Immigrant’s rights are applied

Although Canada has described the immigration and mobility rights of permanent residents in section 6 of the charter, these rights only affect when immigration gets 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.

  • After a province nominates an applicant, the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) will administer admissibility issues, comprising health and security status.
  • Upon landing at a POE (Port of Entry) in Canada, the Border Services Agency will also confirm admissibility, which comprises verifying the genuineness of an applicant's intent to live in a particular province.
  • Upon getting the permanent residence visa and appearing at a POE (port of entry) for admission to Canada, once entered, an applicant's Charter mobility rights to live, work anywhere in Canada becomes applicable, and no authority can question the same.
