Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) of Canada are the key pathway to get permanent residency in Canada. Canada has different provinces and most of them has their separate provincial nominee program. Every PNP has its own process and requirements.
Some key provincial nominee programs has announced changes in their rules and procedures. These changes have made the programs more convenient for the applicants. Let's take a look at the latest PNP rule changes in last few months.
Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) introduced its Express Entry aligned stream in August 2018 under Labour Market Priorities Stream. Alberta is a key Atlantic province of Canada and a wonderful place for new immigrants. The new stream seems to be more flexible with CRS score being no selection factor and specified occupation depending on every draw.
The first draw of AINP- express entry stream occurred on August 8, 2018, and invited 314 candidates.
EOI System of SINP
Saskatchewan province of Canada replaced its first come, first served system of accepting SINP applications with express entry like EOI (Expression of Interest) system. In the new EOI system the applicants get ample time to register their profile and submit the EOI in the system. Consequently, the province is able to target the candidates, which are suitable for the labour market and economy of the province of Saskatchewan.
The SINP selects the submitted EOIs based on the SINP point assessment grid. The applicant must score minimum 60 points to be eligible for Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP). The first EOI based draw of the SINP occurred on August 21, 2018, and invited 466 candidates.
Ontario PNP removed the 400 CRS points requirement
Earlier, Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) had the eligibility criteria in place, according to which, candidates with CRS score 400 or above could only apply in keyOINP streams. Now, the minimum CRS score criteria will be determined by the Director.
The province indicated that it is likely to invite the candidates even below 400 CRS points, in the coming OINP intakes. However, the applicants must have some key features in their profile, i.e. good French language skills (as secondary language), employment offer from province of Ontario, or skills and experience in IT occupation, etc. Ontario PNP has also issued the invite to candidates below 400 CRS points, with similar profile features as mentioned above.

Visas Avenue has been extremely helpful to me in my Australia PR application. My case was very complicated because of some personal emergencies I had during the application process but Samiksha Lal handled it very smoothly with a lot of expertise. My heartily thanks to her for helping me through the whole process with a lot of patience, and never minding my ever changing circumstances. Thank you Samiksha, thanks a lot. I owe you my regards.
Visas Avenue is probably the best company out there for these types of services. I had the pleasure of working with Priyanka Kandwal. She made the process so easy for me by answering all my queries in a timely manner. I am really grateful to you Priyanka for taking me to the finish line. I could not have asked for a better case worker. Keep up the good work.
Jasmeet & Archana was very helpful in assisting me and my wife in getting PR for Canada. They explained the step by step process and took a lot of responsibility in making sure our documents are in order. They made sure we don't miss anything and took care to make sure that there was no reason for our application to be rejected. I highly recommend them for all your immigration needs.

All our queries are answered to the satisfaction. They have been supportive throughout the PR process, and kept us motivated to not take any haste decision.

Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.
When my husband and I were looking to move to Canada we researched on a few agencies to help us out with process. Visas Avenue came with a lot of good reviews and I am glad we went with them. Right from the initial meet up with the local team at Chennai and the follow up coordinating with Mrigya and Arpita has been great. They patiently answered all our queries and guided us at crucial junctures. They ensured our profile captured all the necessary points. We are very happy with our decision and glad we decided on visas avenue.
