This program is for workers who have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of a specific province or territory, want to live in that province, and want to become permanent residents of Canada. Each province and territory has its own “streams” (immigration programs that target certain groups) and requirements. For example, in a program stream, provinces and territories may target; students, business people, skilled workers and semi-skilled workers
This category ensures that provinces and territories have the ability to nominate individuals that will contribute to their economy and permanently fill labour shortages.
Some PNP programs are aligned with the federal Express Entry programs, while some programs are fully managed by the province.
Applications for programs fully managed by the province are usually paper-based, while application for the PNP programs under the Express Entry stream are online based via the Express Entry Profile
To be nominated by a province or territory you must follow the instructions on their website and contact them directly:
