Immigrants in the Express Entry Pool can benefit from various Provincial Immigration Programs in Ontario, Nova, Alberta, and Scotia. The Canadian Government uses these programs to get experienced and skilled profiles from the pool. Selected Immigrants are notified of the province’s interest. They get an invite to apply for the Canada PR under the respective Provincial Immigration Programs.
The Provincial Immigration Programs are often called the passive way of attaining the Canada PR. Immigrants must get the nomination to be able to apply for the Canada PR. However, once nominated, they receive an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.
Let’s have a quick look at three main Provincial Immigration Programs.
Nova Scotia’s Provincial Immigration Program runs occasional searches of the Express Entry Pool for suitable profiles. The profiles must have experience in professions facing a labor shortage in the province. This program was created in August 2018. It has conducted only two searches since then.
The first search was conducted for childhood educators and assistants. The second search was targeted at financial auditors and accountants.
Immigrants must accurately declare their experience in the Express Entry Profile. This would improve their chances of getting noticed by the province.
Alberta’s Provincial Immigration Program was introduced in 2018. The candidate must have gathered a score of at least 300 CRS points to be eligible for this program. Also, their experience must be able to support the province’s economic development. Meeting one or more of the following criteria would increase their chances of getting the nomination –
Ontario’s Provincial Immigration Program has invited the most Immigrants so far, as quoted by CIC News. In January 2019, this province issued nearly 1500 notifications of interest. Candidates must score a minimum of 439 CRS points to be eligible for this program. The searches are limited to the Federal Skilled Worker Class and Canadian Experience class.
