Four provinces in Canada have actively nominated candidates for provincial nomination in the latest published Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw results.
The federal and provincial governments share the responsibility for immigration in Canada and consider the PNP a valuable tool for distributing the economic advantages of immigration to regions beyond major urban centers.
Provincial governments, through the PNP, have the authority to select and nominate candidates they believe are most suitable for economically establishing and integrating into their respective provinces. Once a candidate receives a PNP nomination, their journey to obtaining permanent resident status generally becomes less challenging.
It’s important to note that a province nominating an individual does not guarantee their permanent resident status. They are still required to submit a separate application to Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
