Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

Most provinces and territories in Canada have an agreement with the Government of Canada that allows them to nominate immigrants (individuals and their families) based on its immigration needs and the applicant’s intention to settle in that province. The Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) enables Provincial and Territorial governments in Canada to attract immigrants to their region.

Here is a list of the provinces and territory currently participating in PNP.

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

If you choose to immigrate to Canada as a provincial nominee you must:

  • Apply and complete the provincial nomination process of the Province or Territory you wish to settle in.
  • Each province and territory has its own immigration program with varying requirements, except for Quebec, which has a different system from Canada altogether.
  • Demonstrate the skillset and ability to contribute to the economy of the province/territory you are applying to.
  • Receive a Provincial Nomination Certificate from the province/territory.

After you receive the Provincial Nomination Certificate, you must:

  • Send an application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for Permanent Residence.
  • A CIC officer will assess your application based on the Canadian Immigration requirements. These applications will not be assessed based on the six selection factors of the Federal Skilled Workers Program.

All applicants must:

  • Complete and pass a medical examination.
  • Have security clearance.
  • Demonstrate sufficient funds to support himself/herself and his/her dependents after arriving in Canada.

Each province and territory has its own program stream, identifying applicants that demonstrate the ability and skills to contribute to the growth and prosperity of that province and territory in Canada.
