Provincial Immigration Invitations Have Been Issued by British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, and Manitoba
In recent provincial immigration draws, four provinces have invited candidates. Most of Canada’s economic immigrant permanent residents arrive through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), with a target of over 117,500 new PNP permanent residents coming to Canada each year by 2025, according to the Immigration Levels Plan 2023-2025.
The PNP plays a crucial role in spreading the economic benefits of immigration throughout the country. Unlike before the program’s establishment in 1998. When most immigrants settled in a few of Canada’s urban centers.
Provincial nomination for candidates is possible because immigration is a shared responsibility. Between the federal and provincial governments. Quebec, however, is unique in that it has complete control over the admission of economic, skilled immigrants into the province.
