Alberta, New Brunswick, and Quebec Declare Results of Recent PNP Draws

Three provinces, including Alberta, New Brunswick, and Quebec, shared details of recent rounds of PNP draws.

Provincial nominee programs help Canadian provinces and territories choose candidates who can boost the labor force by integrating into the provincial economy. Canada aims to welcome 105,000 candidates through Provincial Nominee Programs in 2023. Every province receives a specific quota to invite candidates to settle and contribute to economic development.
