Provincial Nominee Program

Provincial Nominee Program – Immigrate with the support of the province!

Most of the immigrants who come to Canada settle in only three major cities of the country – Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver. To distribute the immigration flow more equally and to stimulate the growth of the economy in all parts of Canada, the Federal Government in cooperation with provincial authorities, granted the province the right to invite immigrants directly to their province. This initiative is known under the name Provincial Nominee Program or PNP. The PNP is an umbrella for all provincial provinces. There are over 80 different streams of the provincial programs.

History

Manitoba was the first Canadian province that created the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) in 1999. In the same year, the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP) and the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP) were launched. In 2001, another three programs were established: the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP), and Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP). In 2002, the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) and Yukon Nominee Program (YNP) started to select candidates. In 2003, Nova Scotia launched the Nova Scotia Nominee Program (NSNP). The most popular Canadian province – Ontario – launched the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) only in 2007. Finally, the last was the Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP), which started in 2009. As of December 2019, Nunavut is the only territory that does not have its PNP.

Provinces select candidates for the provincial nomination

Provinces select candidates based on several factors. In most cases, it is based on in-demand occupations of the candidates or on the ties the candidates have – family, past study or work experience in the province. Candidates submit the application for the nomination of the province. If approved, the provincial immigration authority provides you with the certificate of the provincial nomination, which allows applying for a permanent residence in Canada.

How many immigrants come to Canada under the PNP?

In 2015, 44,535 immigrants arrived in Canada as a provincial nominee. In 2016, this number increased to 46,180. The trend continued in 2017 when 49,740 foreigners were granted the PR status in Canada followed by the provincial nomination. In 2018, 62,440 immigrants landed in the country via the PNP. Finally, in 2019, a record-high 68,650 provincial nominees got PR in Canada. According to the 2020-2020 Immigration Levels Plan, for 2020, the government set a goal of at least 67,800 immigrants in this program.
