The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

Canada's Provincial Nominee Program is aimed at people who have the knowledge, academic and professional experience to contribute to Canada's economy in a specific province or territory, with the option to become Canada permanent residents. In a sense, Provincial Nominee Program is a 'spin-off' version of the Express Entry program .

Each of Canada's 13 provinces and territories have their own Provincial Nominee Program to help meet their own specific economic and demographic goals. This means that the eligibility requirements are different between each province and territory.

These are the 13 provinces and territories which participate in The Provincial Nominee Program:

  • Alberta
  • British Columbia
  • Manitoba
  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland and Labrador
  • Northwest Territories
  • Nova Scotia
  • Ontario
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Quebec
  • Saskatchewan
  • Yukon

Completing your Canada immigration through the Provincial Nominee Program is a two-step process. The first step is to get nominated by the province to submit an application for permanent residency. The next step is to receive final approval from the Canadian federal government.

If you qualify for the Provincial Nominee Program, you will be able to become a permanent resident, bring your family with you and eventually apply for Canadian citizenship.
