Canada’s PNPs allow Canadian provinces to nominate individuals for immigration to their province based on criteria set by the provincial government. Successful applicants obtain a provincial nomination, which may then be used to apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent residence.
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.
