Get Into The Canada Express Entry Pool Immediately:

Looking to relocate to Canada quickly and get on track for a PR? The Canada Provincial Nominee Program is an accessible way to settle in Canada. Under the Provincial Nominee Program Canadian provinces and territories can nominate individuals for a Canadian Permanent Residency. While the PNP program is separate from the Express Entry program, it does offer applicants holding a select PNP an additional 600 CRS points when they enter the Express Entry pool. Several PNP programs have sent Letters of Interest to applicants with CRS scores under 400 as well. Y-Axis can help you take advantage of this huge opportunity to migrate to Canada with our dedicated visa and immigration support.

Canada Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Details

The Canada Provincial Nominee Program was created to attract skilled international talent to Canada provinces facing a talent shortage. Thousands of successful applicants have relocated and permanently settled in Canada through the PNP program. Some of the best Canadian provinces to apply to under this program are:

  • Prince Edward Island
  • Ontario
  • Saskatchewan
  • Manitoba
  • Nova Scotia

If you are a skilled professional with experience in technology, finance, education, marketing or healthcare, now is the perfect time to explore your options through the PNP program.

You can apply under the PNP option to migrate to Canada if you want to live in a province, contribute to its economy and wish to become a permanent resident of Canada.

Options in the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

There are two options when filling an application through the PNP program:

  1. Paper based process
  2. Through Experss Entry

 Paper based process:

The first step is to apply to the province or territory for nomination under the non-Express Entry stream.  If you meet the eligibility requirements and qualify through the individual In-demand Occupation Lists of some provinces, you will get a nomination from the province if your occupation is on the list. You can then apply for a Canada PR Visa.

You will now have to submit a paper application for your PR visa. The processing time is usually longer than through the Express Entry system.

Express Entry System:

There are 2 ways to apply:

You can apply for a nomination by contacting the province or territory and apply for a nomination under the Express Entry stream.

If you get a positive response from the province or territory to nominate you, you can create an Express Entry profile or update your profile if it already exists.

The other option is to create an Express Entry profile and indicate the provinces or territories you are interested in. If the province sends a ‘notification of interest’ you can then contact them and then apply through the Express Entry system.

You must meet the eligibility requirements for a successful outcome of your application.

Steps in PNP application for PR visa:

  1. Apply in the province or region where you desire to settle.
  2. If your profile meets the eligibility criteria, you could be nominated by the province to apply for a PR visa.
  3. Apply for your PR visa after you are nominated by a province.

The criteria for evaluating the PR application varies from province to province.

Documents Required

To apply for the Canadian PNP program, applicants need to present their:

  • Current passport and travel history
  • Educational credentials
  • Professional credentials
  • Recent medical report
  • Police clearance certificate
  • Other supporting documents

Features of the Provincial nominee program:

Canada offers nearly 80 different PNPs which have their individual eligibility requirements. The PNP program allows provinces to meet their individual immigration needs by helping them fill jobs that are in demand and meet labor shortages in their province.

Most PNPs require applicants to have some connection to the province. They should have either worked earlier in that province or studied there. Or they should have a job offer from an employer in the province for a job visa.

A provincial nomination can help you in two ways to get your PR visa. It can add 600 CRS points to your Express Entry application and makes you eligible to apply for your PR visa directly to IRCC.

FAQ
What is Canadian PNP?

The Canada Provincial Nominee Programs offer a valuable pathway to Canada PR Visa. The PNPs permit territories and provinces in Canada to nominate persons. These must be inclined to migrate to Canada and settle in a specific province.

Each territory and Province in Canada has its own exclusive PNP. The exception is Quebec and Nunavut. Each PNP has minimum one immigration stream that is linked with the federal immigration selection system of Express Entry.

Nominations from provinces offered under these streams linked with Express Entry also known as enhanced nominations. These incur extra 600 CRS/ Comprehensive Ranking System points to the Express Entry. It effectively ensures an ITA for Canada PR Visa in the subsequent Express Entry draws.

What are the eligibility requirements for the PNP program?

To apply under the PNP program you must meet the minimum requirements for the province’s non-Express Entry streams or must be nominated under that stream.

If you do not receive a nomination, then you must contact the province directly.

How can I apply for PNP in Canada?

There are two ways to apply for Provincial Nominee Programs in Canada. These are:

Express Entry

Non-Express Entry

Application through Express Entry:

Most of the streams in Provincial Nominee Programs are linked with Express Entry system. You can create a profile and if you score the minimum points you will be entered into the pool of candidates.

If any province has requirements, they can select your profile for nomination. This is subject to the suitability of your profile. You can then apply for the PR Visa after you get Invitation to Apply from any province. 

The application directly to a PNP:

If you have a specific Canadian province in your mind, you can easily apply for that province. Below are the steps to directly apply to a Provincial Nominee Program:

  • Select a PNP of a Province
  • Fulfil the requirements and submit the complete application
  • Obtain a nomination from that Province/PNP
  • Receive the Nomination certificate

•    Apply for Canada PR Visa with IRCC

Is the job offer mandatory for PNP?

  • PNP Nova Scotia
  • Human Capital Priorities Stream of Ontario
  • Saskatchewan Express Entry Sub-category International Skilled Worker of Saskatchewan

  • Specific occupations 
  • Semi-skilled workers 
  • Skilled workers 
  • Business people 
  • Students
     

Candidates can file an application for Provincial Nomination either after obtaining valid job offers of through Express Entry. Some of the Provinces have their individual In-demand Occupation Lists.

An applicant will be offered an invitation to apply for Nomination by a Province if their occupation is listed in its In-demand Occupation List. They can then file a Canada PR Visa application if they receive the nomination from the Province.

I am in India, and planning to apply for a PNP PR, does the PNP PR still help me take education first in Canada and then start working?

Applicants who possess the Work Experience, Education and Skills can submit an application for the Provincial Nominee Program. Each territory and province has its own criteria for eligibility. Some PNP programs are allied with Express Entry while some are not.
