Permanent Residency By Provincial Nominee Programs

Choose your province, we will do the rest.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada has signed up with provinces and territories in Canada (except Quebec – which has a separate selection program), allowing them to nominate immigrants through a system titled Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

The most well-known Provincial Programs in Canada are the British Columbia PNP (also known as BC PNP), Manitoba PNP and Alberta PNP.

Those who wish to apply under Provincial Nominee Programs must have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of that province or territory and must want to live there. Provincial Nomination is also an important fast-track option available for Canadian Permanent Residency.

How It Works

Each province and territory has its own “streams” (immigration programs designed for different groups of candidates) and criteria for their PNP. For example: in a program stream, provinces and territories may target students, business people, skilled workers or semi-skilled workers. In some Provinces, applicants with family members, close relatives or family friends in that particular province are given additional advantage.

Some Provincial Nomination Programs may be connected to the Express Entry system . This was done in January 1, 2015 and are called ‘Enhanced Nominations’.

Provinces participating in the PNP:

British Columbia
New Brunswick
Newfoundland and Labrador
Northwest Territories
Nova Scotia
Prince Edward Island
