All the Provinces in Canada have Immigration Programs tailored according to their requirements.
Applicants who intent to make the particular Province their home and can also contribute effectively, to the social and economical growth of the province are eligible under these programs.
After the applicant is nominated by a province, they are issued a nomination certificate that they have to submit with the application to IRCC. The Provincial Nominee Programs expediate the process of obtaining permanent residency.
PNP has various streams targeting Skilled Workers, Semi-Skilled Workers, Investors, Businessmen, and International students.
Quebec has its own selection criteria. The Provincial Program of Quebec is not aligned with Federal Express Entry System. Quebec has its own –Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP). QSWP is a point-based selection system in which points are given based on age, job, education, work experience, and language skills. The requirements are quite similar to that of the Federal Skilled Worker Program.
The requirements and streams to apply in Provincial Nominee Programs are subject to change and are customised according to changing requirements of the Province.
