Provincial Nominee Program FAQ's

Provincial Nominee Program Question

Q. What are the Provincial Nominee Programs?

Many people from around the world desire to immigrate to Canada. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) set up Provincial Nominee Programs to enable the different provinces and territories of Canada to select individuals who would then be able to settle down in a particular Canadian province or territory and contribute to its economic development.

Almost all Canadian provinces and territories participate in the Provincial Nominee Program.

Q. Which provinces participate in the Provincial Nominee Program?

Here is the list of provinces that participate in this program:

  • Alberta
  • British Columbia
  • Manitoba
  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland And Labrador
  • Northwest Territories
  • Nova Scotia
  • Ontario
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Saskatchewan
  • Yukon

Q. Is the province of Quebec part of the Provincial Nominee Program?

It is not. Following an agreement with the Canadian government, Quebec set up its own selection program for people desirous of settling there.

Q. Is Provincial Nomination a requirement for Canadian immigration?

It is not. You can apply for and get a Canada Immigration Visa, also known as Permanent Resident Visa, without applying for provincial nomination.

Q. What is the advantage of obtaining a Provincial Nomination?

Once you get the provincial nomination, you are on the fast track for getting a Canadian Immigration Visa as your application shall be processed quickly.

Simply put, it is another way to qualify for Permanent Residency from the Federal Skilled Worker category.

Q. Where and when does an application under the Provincial Nominee Program get submitted?

You have to apply at the appropriate provincial government office. Once that is done, you can apply for a Canada Immigration Visa.

Q. How do the Provincial Nominee Programs work with the Express Entry immigration selection system?

Under this system, territories and provinces can nominate candidates that meet the needs of local and provincial labor markets. Under the PNP, this is called ‘enhanced’ nomination.

If you are able to get an enhanced nomination from a province, you are awarded 600 points by the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) from a possible total of 1200.

You also get points for human capital and skills transferability. When all of these are combined, you stand a chance at receiving an Invitation to Apply at a draw from the Express Entry pool for permanent residency in Canada.

There are three federal economic immigration programs and you have to meet the eligibility criteria of any one of them to enter the Express Entry pool for selection. These are:

  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
  • Federal Skilled Worker (FSW)
  • Federal Skilled Trades (FST)

Some territories and provinces and territories have a few extra criteria for their streams of immigration.

On the basis of the province you choose, you may enter the Express Entry pool first depending on your eligibility and subsequently be nominated by a province or territory or vice versa.

Q. What is a "base" Provincial Nomination?

Outside of the Express Entry system, provinces and territories can nominate people under a regular or base PNP.

People who are desirous of immigrating to Canada but stand ineligible for the Express Entry system can apply through a base PNP if they are eligible for the provincial program. Their applications are not processed by Express Entry.

This process goes like this:

  • You have to meet the criteria set for a PNP stream.
  • Once eligible, you can apply for it.
  • If you get the nomination certificate, you have to apply to the federal government to gain permanent residency.

Q. Does receiving a Provincial Nomination guarantee a Canada Immigration Visa?

No. The IRCC issues a Canadian Immigration Visa only once it is assured of meeting all statutory requirements in terms of health, security, and authenticity of documents.

Q. What criteria do most provinces look for in their Nominees?

These are:

  • The applicant’s education and English/French language skills
  • If the candidate has a valid job offer in the province
  • The applicant’s work experience in critical industries
  • If the applicant has close relations in a particular province and shows the ability to adapt to life there
