Provincial Nominee Programme (PNP)

The Provincial Nominee Program will not replace other economic immigration programs, such as the Federal Temporary Foreign Worker Program and tshe federal skilled worker program. Alberta Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Yukon already have similar provincial nominee programs.

A Program Officer will assess your application according to the same factors on the Self-Assessment Worksheet. Consideration will also be given to:
• Overall assessment of the application by a Program Officer.
• Licensing and regulatory requirements for your intended occupation.
• The applicant's potential to be successful under Canada's Independent Immigrant category.
Canada and its Provinces have entered into agreements that allow a person to be nominated by the Provincial Government and to be issued an Immigrant Visa without having to meet the pass mark that is required for skilled worker immigrants.

As a result, individual Provinces are responsible for issuing nomination certificates. If you are successful in convincing a Province that you have a skill or business, which is in high demand for that particular Province, the Province will issue you a certificate, provided that you meet all other statutory and admissibility requirements of Citizenship and Immigration Canada and that you can become economically established. You will then be issued an Immigrant Visa for entry into Canada.

The requirements and procedures for the Provincial Nominee Programs differ from Province to Province depending upon the needs and experience.

Note: After a province has nominated you, you have to make a separate application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for permanent residence. A CIC officer will assess your application based on Canadian immigration regulations.

Provincial Nominees are not assessed on the six selection factors of the Federal Skilled Workers Program.
