This week, candidates in British Columbia and Ontario were invited to apply across their Provincial Nomination Programs.

Even though provincial candidacy is not synonymous with permanent residence, it can serve as the first step toward obtaining permanent resident status from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Apart from Quebec and Nunavut, the majority of Canadian provinces and territories run there own own Provincial Nomination Programs. Interested candidates could be invited to submit applications for a nomination through these programs.

Quebec’s immigration systems are prescribed by the region and are distinguishable from those of Canada.

The PNP was established in 1998 and now handles more than 80,000 PR admissions each year. The increase in PNP enrollment in Canada is due to the provincial and federal governments viewing it as an effective tool for promoting the country’s economic development outside of provinces and urban centers with the already elevated immigrant populations.
