Provincial Nominee Program
The Canada Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) allows provinces to nominate individuals who have the skills, education and experience required by the province or territory. PNP are selected based on their ability to contribute to the province’s economic development. Usually, but not always, a genuine Canadian job offer from an employer within the province is a requirement under the PNP. Most provinces in Canada participate in the PNP. Participating provinces sign agreements with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (IRCC) that allow them to directly select immigrants who meet the requirements they have established. Immigrants who wish to apply as a Provincial Nominee must first apply to the province where they wish to settle. There are some cases where this requirement is waved.
A Provincial Nomination means that your application for a Canada Immigration Visa will be processed faster and that you will arrive in Canada sooner.
