Provincial Nominee Program or PNP
The federal government is behind the immigration rules and regulations. The government has allowed certain Canadian provinces to nominate individuals who they want to settle in their province. The PNP or Provincial Nominee Program makes this possible. There are multiple streams under PNP. Each stream caters to different categories of immigrants. Some provinces provide family support through which family members can sponsor other people to come to Canada.
Who can apply for the PNP?
Workers can apply for the PNP if they:
- Have the education, skills and work experience to add value to the economy of specific territory or province
- Want to acquire permanent residence in Canada
- Want to live in that particular province
Each territory and province consists of their own streams which have its own specific requirements.
What are the application options?
Firstly, you need to pass a medical exam and a police check to be eligible for the process. Prior to that, you can opt for either of these options to apply for the program:
