Top 5 Easiest Provinces to Obtain Permanent Residency

Canada provides an abundance of opportunities for immigrants to come live and work in the country and become a vital part of its society. One of the stand-out programs Canada came up with is the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), where you have the opportunity to work in one of Canada’s 13 provinces:

Central Canada
Quebec (has its own PNP) and Ontario

West Coast
British Columbia

Atlantic Region
New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador

Prairie Provinces
Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta

North
Nunavut (has its own PNP), Northwest Territories, and Yukon

Let’s take a look at the 5 easiest provinces to obtain permanent residency:

Alberta
Alberta provides many cost-of-living benefits, such as tax credits, no provincial sales tax, and no provincial healthcare premiums. Alberta has excellent transportation, universities, and free healthcare insurance. This province doesn’t have a specific job list, which means that they are open to accepting people with diverse professional backgrounds. Also, you are not required to obtain a job offer to become eligible to apply.

Ontario
Ontario is known for its cleanliness, quality public services, and high salaries. This province boasts a strong tech industry, which means that if you are seeking a prosperous career in IT, modern-day technology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning – this is the place to go to.

Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan has a strong economy, which means high salaries, plenty of employment opportunities, and low housing costs. This province has over 200 (!) occupations in the NOC job list, you are not required to obtain a job offer, and they allocate additional CRS points to candidates with relatives living in the province, who are not necessarily blood-related.

Prince Edward Island
Prince Edward Island will give you that community feel. It’s safe, easy to commute, and not as populated as the bigger cities in Canada (only 140,000 residents). This province has an ‘open occupation list’, which means that they are open to accepting immigrants of diverse professional backgrounds.

Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia is rich with stunning landscapes, has a strong economy that is based on finance organizations and firms, provides a low cost of living, no healthcare premiums, and an overall high quality of life. The immigration process to Nova Scotia is relatively simpler and shorter (around 3 months or more), you can become eligible to apply without a job offer and receive permanent residency within 6 months.
