What is the Canadian PNP program?

Canada PNP program is a great alternative to a Canadian Federal skilled worker visa (PR).

The provincial nominee programs are helpful to:

  1. Candidates who cannot meet the minimum criteria to qualify for the PR visa of Canada.
  2. Applicants who cannot score enough (CRS) to receive an invitation to apply in the Express Entry Pool to proceed for the final stage.

The Canadian PNP program allows the provincial government to select the immigrants they need for the province or territory. It also offers applicants the opportunity to become permanent residents.

With a suitable Provincial nomination, you have more chances of getting an Invitation to Apply (ITA). When you receive the ITA, you can apply for a Permanent Residency visa.

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 Express 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.
