The provincial route to Canadian permanent residence involves a nomination by a provincial or territorial government under the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP] of Canada.
Canada is a confederation of 10 provinces and 3 territories.
Of these, 9 provinces and 2 territories are a part of the PNP.
Quebec, as per the Canada- Quebec Accord, has its own immigration programs. A candidate that takes either the federal Express Entry or PNP pathway into Canada can settle anywhere in the country except Quebec.
Nunavut has no immigration program for the induction of newcomers into the territory.
|Is the PNP for me?|
|Canadian PNP is targeted at workers that –|
 possess the education, skills, and work experience for being able to contribute to the economy of a specific province/territory in Canada,
 have the clear intention of living within the nominating province/territory, and
 want to take up Canadian permanent residence.
There are almost 80 different immigration pathways available under the PNP, many linked with the Express Entry system of the federal government of Canada.
An immigration pathway or ‘stream’ of the PNP can specifically target a particular group of immigrations, such as – skilled workers, semi-skilled workers, businesspeople, or international students.
The application process will be as per the PNP stream applying under. Express Entry linked PNP streams, also referred to as “enhanced nominations”, have a completely online application process.
Non-Express Entry PNP streams, with “base nominations”, have a paper-based application process.
The PNP inductions target for 2021 stands at 80,800.
