Provincial Nominee Program


PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) has been enforced for someone who wants to immigrate to Canada or a specific province. In order to apply for PNP, applicants must meet several requirements. The most important thing is applicants must receive a full-time permanent employment. Besides, PNP includes low-skilled occupations which are impossible to apply for Federal Skilled Worker. After obtaining PNP Confirmation successfully, nominees will be able to apply for a Permanent Resident. Most provinces have been participating in PNP, and this is a list of the provinces.

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

Quebec province is also participating in PNP, but we are not going to introduce Quebec PNP because their programs’ qualifications are little different from other provinces.
