What is PNP (Provincial Nominee Program)?
Provinces and territories (PTs) that operate a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) can nominate candidates through the Express Entry pool, in addition to nominating foreign nationals to the existing paper-based process.
Candidates who have a PT nomination receive an additional 600 points in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which usually guarantees they will receive an invitation to apply (ITA) for permanent residence in the next Express Entry draw.
PNPs offer a pathway to Canadian permanent residence for those who are interested in immigrating to a specific Canadian province or territory.
How to know if I qualify for a PNP if I don’t qualify for Express Entry?
Most Provincial Nominee Programs require that applicants have an active profile in the Express Entry pool. However, in some cases, it is possible that some provinces issue nominations to applicants who do not have Express Entry eligibility. Since the eligibility requirements vary for these programs, it is best to consult with a licenced immigration representative to discuss your eligibility.
