Welcome to our website page dedicated to the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), a significant pathway for candidates seeking Canadian Permanent Residence. The PNP allows Canadian provinces and territories, except for Nunavut and Quebec, to nominate individuals who are willing to settle in a specific province. With at least one immigration stream aligned with the federal Express Entry system, the PNP offers a streamlined process for achieving permanent residence. In this article, we will provide an overview of the program and highlight the Enhanced Nominations that award additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points to Express Entry candidates. Explore the specific Provincial Nomination Programs available and visit their websites for the latest information.
Understanding the Provincial Nominee Program:
The Provincial Nominee Program offers a fantastic opportunity for candidates to obtain Canadian Permanent Residence. Each Canadian province and territory, excluding Nunavut and Quebec, has its own nomination program. These programs allow provinces to nominate individuals who are eager to settle in a particular province. By participating in a Provincial Nomination Program, candidates gain a competitive advantage in the immigration process.
Enhanced Nominations are provincial nominations issued under the Express Entry-aligned streams. These nominations grant Express Entry candidates an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points, significantly boosting their ranking within the Express Entry pool. The additional CRS points increase the likelihood of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence. For the most up-to-date information on Enhanced Nominations, please visit the websites of the respective Provincial Nomination Programs.
