Are you disappointed with no ITA received via Express Entry system since long? Well, you don’t have to get disheartened, rather try to explore the alternate ways to find entry in Canada. One among such alternate ways is Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Let’s find out more about the Provincial Nominee Programs of Canada and how you can use them to find entry in Canada.
Provincial Nominee Program- A key Canada immigration pathway
The provincial nominee programs are the immigration program of the different provinces of Canada. Almost ever Canadian province has a Provincial Nominee Program, through which it selects the best immigrant workers for its own province. The Provincial Nominee Program operates in coordination with federal government. Some popular Provincial Nominee Programs of Canada are:
How PNPs work?
Every province has a different eligibility criterion to select candidates along with different procedure of application as well. For instance, to apply in OINP, you need to have at least 400 CRS points in express entry. The provinces receive an annual quota for nominating the applicants. A province cannot nominate applicants beyond that quota.
Every Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) has different streams to invite applicants for nomination. Most of the PNPs have a popular Express Entry stream, through which, they have access to notify candidates registered in express entry pool to apply in the PNP.
Therefore, if you are already registered in express entry system, it is a bonus for you, as for express entry stream, an applicant need to have an express entry account.
Get additional 600 CRS points for Provincial Nomination
If you apply in a PNP and get selected for Provincial Nomination, you will get additional 600 CRS points in Express Entry. The qualifying score (CRS Score requirement) in Express entry at now is 400-450 CRS points; hence, it is obvious that you will get ITA (invitation to apply) for Canada PR, after getting additional 600 CRS points.
Moreover, if you apply in other streams of PNPs, i.e. Occupation in Demand stream or employer driven stream, etc. you get direct nomination for Canada PR. Once, direct nomination is received from a province in Canada; you can apply for Canada PR to IRCC based on the same. After that, IRCC will just perform the general verifications, concerning medical and character certifications, etc.
Apply for a Provincial Nominee Program with Professional advice and assistance
Hence, the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) remains the key alternate pathways if you are not getting the express entry invitation in view of low CRS score. Most of candidates choose this pathway to apply and get Permanent Residency (PR) in Canada. If you seek professional advice and assistance to apply in PNP, you may contact certified Canada immigration experts at Visas Avenue Immigration- a registered Canadian Visa Consultancy firm in India.

Thumbs up for team visas avenue. Excellent support staff with in depth knowledge."RIGHT PEOPLE WITH PERFECT APPROACH"A special thanks to Ruchika Sharma for her constant support . She infused great confidence in us and it is only due to her commitment towards her work and us that we are able to get Canadian PR.Way to go Ruchika.
I am happy to share that we have received our Canada PR recently and would like to thank Visas Avenue for the excellent services they have rendered. My contact person in Visas Avenue was Shivangi Arora - Sr. Manager Visa & Documentation and she has guided and supported us in an excellent manner throughout the process. She was very prompt in articulating all the requirements and has managed the whole process in a very professional manner. I would like to thank Shivangi for her excellent support and professional mannerism and wish her all the best in her future endevaours. I would like to recommend Visas Avenue to all the prospective candidates. Genuine company with a customer centric focus well supplemented by excellent people. Thanks and All the Best !!!
Having spoken to a couple of agents and not being impressed with their responses and constant demand to urgently make a payment to secure their services I was hesitant initially while I got in touch with Visa Avenue.This doubt was cast aside in the first conversation I had with Rajesh, who was open with his communication and did not put any pressure on registering at that moment.When I did make up my mind I was assigned Ruchika Sharma as the case officer. There were constant updates over email and telephone and the seemingly endless process of submitting documents was made hassle free. This was very important when you have a full time job and with Ruchika following up the strict deadlines were met as everyone at Visa Avenue is very clear with the processesThere was always a backup person, who was up to date with my case incase Ruchika was on leave which I felt was one of the best aspects of the service provided.There is also a person touch with their communication.

I used visas avenue for my Australian PR and can highly recommend them.Right from the start (skills evaluation) upto getting the grant, they were extremely professional and supportive. My case officer was Ruchika, who I can highly rate. Her knowledge of the process and inputs provided in terms of documentations were really valuable and helped get through certain barriers at times. Though my process took quite a bit of time, she was patient and followed up at regular intervals!Thanks a lot for all the help!!
I availed the services of Visas Avenue in 2014 to kick-start the process for the Australian PR which me and my family is interested. I got the necessary skills assessment done through Visas Avenue. Although the process was a bit complicated for me but Visas Avenue were very professional and helped me out on each and every step of the process. They not only guided me with preparation of documents, they also gave me an insight into requirements in order to make a successful skills assessment. The whole process was done in a quick and efficient manner. I have a got a positive outcome for my skills assessment and plan to use Visas Avenue services to complete the rest of the PR process. I would recommend Visas Avenue to my friends and relatives are interested in emigrating.
Let me start by saying that these guys are awesome - professionals, agile and they know their stuff. It took me just 3 months to get my Australia PR from the time they started working on it ( could have even been lesser if I was a bit prompt in document submissions). Kirti Chauhan who has been my case manager was extremely knowledgeable and diligent in the process which ensured that no documents are referred back by Immigration. Being process centric and knowledgeable, she ensured that stuff happened on time and right the first time.I surely recommended Visa Avenues for all the work that they do.
VisasAvenue has helped me to fulfill my ambitions.I have got my Australian PR without any issues and problems.Rajesh has helped me to visualise the complete roadmap of PR process and has always kept me motivated and positive.He is enthusiastic,highly knowledgeable and reliable person.Erin Verma has taken step forward to complete all application filing,documentation assessment and visa filing.She is extremely patient and dedicated person who always ensure the correctness of documents and information which is very important for visa processes.I must say that without VisasAvenue it was not able for me to fulfill my dream.I highly recommend them for anyone who are seriously looking out for PR options.Heartiest thanks to complete VisasAvenue team for commendable job.
