Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

Canada’s provincial nominee programs (PNPs) offers a pathway to Canadian permanent residence for people who intent to immigrate to a specific Canadian province or territory.

Each province or territory determines their own eligibility criteria for Provincial Nominee Programs. It will depend on the needs of each province and territory.

Under a shared jurisdiction Canada operates a two-tiered immigration system, offering programs for skilled workers, at both federal and provincial levels. Almost all of Canada’s ten provinces and three territories can nominate candidates for admission to Canada with the specific skills required by their local economies.

Successful candidates who receive a provincial or territorial nomination can then apply for Canadian permanent residence through federal immigration authorities.

Most of provinces also run their own categories under the Canada Express Entry System. Candidates who do not qualify under one of the federal programs may qualify for admission to Canada under a PNP. Some candidates may also qualify for a temporary work permit in the interim, allowing for early entry to Canada for the applicant and their accompanying dependants.
