The Provincial Nominee Programs issue the nomination certificate to the selected candidates and this nomination enables these applicants to receive as many as 600 extra CRS points in express entry account. Such value addition of points makes the applicants eligible to get Canada PR invitation from IRCC.

As the Canada immigration gradually heading towards normalcy, the PNPs are going to be even more active and prevalent in the months to come. Hence, if you wish to get Canada PR even with low Comprehensive Ranking System score, you may apply in the most appropriate one for your profile.
