0 min read

A Provincial Nominee Program is an immigration program that allows a participating province or territory in Canada to bring in immigrants who meet certain criteria, such as work experience and skills, tailored to the region.

Applicants to the PNP must meet the requirements of the region they plan to settle in and must apply to the region for a nomination. Once their nominations are approved, they must submit their application for permanent resident status to Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Launched in 2015, the Express Entry streams offer a simplified online application process for eligible applicants. Applicants must submit their medical exam results and copies of their police certificates along with their application. The processing time for applications through these streams is typically six months or less.
