For an Express Entry candidate, a provincial nomination is a guarantee of receiving an invitation by the federal government of Canada to apply for Canadian immigration.
A PNP nomination – through any of the Express Entry-linked PNP ‘streams’ or immigration pathways – leads to 600 points being added to the ranking score of the candidate based on the Comprehensive Ranking System [CRS].
With the CRS 600 points boost, a provincial nominee is assured of receiving an Invitation to Apply [ITA] from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC] in the next federal Express Entry draw to be held.
It is only the highest-ranked Express Entry profiles that are invited to apply for Canada permanent residence. Not all Express Entry candidates are invited.
