Why Should You Apply for PR through PNP Canada?
The biggest advantage of applying for permanent residency in Canada through the Provincial Nominee Program is that it offers a pathway to permanent residency for people who don’t meet the eligibility requirements for the Express Entry Program.
With your permanent residency status, you will be eligible for all social benefits, subsidized healthcare and education, protection under Canadian law and more. Eventually, you may apply for Canadian citizenship (if eligible).
