Provincial Nominee Program (PNPs)

The provincial nomination is an important fast-track option for Canadian permanent residence.
The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) allows Canadian provinces and territories to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and who are interested in settling in a particular province.
Canadian provinces or territories (Except the province of Quebec) have agreements with the government of Canada to select applicants for Permanent Residency under their own unique nominee programs.
Province of Quebec has its own selection criteria, which is different from the rest of Canada.
Under the PNP programs the each province and territory set their guidelines as per the agreement with the federal government.

Canada is planning to increase the number of immigrants through provincial nominee programs in the upcoming years. Here is the list of provinces in Canada:


British Columbia


New Brunswick

Newfoundland and Labrador

Northwest Territories

Nova Scotia


Prince Edward Island



The PNP program is one of the successful programs on Canadian immigration. Under the Provincial Nominee Program Canadian provinces and territories has successfully nominated many applicants in the past. This has been handled very effectively and tailored to the needs of the regions.
Many new immigrants have successfully settled in Canada under the PNP. The suitable candidates should apply to the express entry pool under the federal program and the interested province will nominate the qualified candidates who had chosen the said province or territory.
