About Canada PNP

Provincial nomination offers a valuable route to Canadian permanent residence. The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) allow Canadian provinces and territories to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and who are interested in settling in a particular province. Each Canadian province and territory has its own unique Provincial Nominee Program. Each PNP has at least one immigration stream that is aligned with the federal Express Entry immigration selection system. These immigrants must have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of that province or territory, and must want to live there.

Please note that:

  • Some PNP Canada streams are aligned with the federal Express Entry (EE) immigration selection system, while some are managed entirely outside Express Entry.
  • Some PNP Canada streams require applicants to have a job offer, while other streams do not.
  • Some PNP Canada streams allow individuals to apply directly, without first being invited to apply, while other streams operate on an EOI basis, whereby eligible individuals must first be invited to apply before submitting an application.

Canada PR applications are processed significantly faster when submitted through Express Entry. Traditional applications to become a permanent resident of Canada can take as long as 24 months to be processed. Under Canada Express Entry, however, a Canadian permanent residency application is almost always processed by CIC staff in six months or less.
