Provincial immigration pathways

Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs are popular pathways to permanent residency among aspiring immigrants willing to work and settle in their favorite provinces. Provincial immigration helps Canadian provinces and territories target skilled workers to meet their specific economic and labor market needs. Successful candidates receiving Invitations to Apply through periodic PNP draws become eligible to apply for permanent residence to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRC). Provincial nomination helps Express Entry candidates boost their CRS score by 600 points, ensuring success.
