Canada PNP offers around 80 immigration pathways or ‘streams’. Each of the PNP streams targets a specific class of immigrants. A PNP stream might be for – skilled workers, semi-skilled workers, international students, or businesspeople.

Canadian PNP offers a route to permanent residence in Canada, provided the individual wants to live within the province/territory nominating them for Canada PR.

The application process for a specific PNP will be as per the stream applying to. PNP stream aligned with the federal Express Entry system follow a completely online application process. These are enhanced PNP nominations.

Other streams have a paper-based process. A nomination through such any of such streams is referred to as a base nomination.

The number of invitations issued in any PNP draw is as per the annual nomination’s allocation, the volume of applications under processing, and the demand of the local labour market.
