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.
