Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

Under the Provincial Nominee Program or PNP, you need to apply in the province you intend to settle, and the province has to nominate you. This will depend on your education, skills, and experience.

Under the PNP program, the province will tell you whether to apply for a nomination under the Express PNP or the Non-Express PNP stream.   This program differs from province to province, and with our immigration experts, we can help you explore this option.

Express Entry process

  • In the online Express Entry process, there are 2 ways to apply:
    • You contact the province or territory and apply for a nomination under an Express Entry stream.
    • If the province or territory agrees to nominate you, you create an Express Entry profile (or update your profile if you already have one) and show you have been nominated.OR
    • You create an Express Entry profile and show the provinces and territories you’re interested in.
    • If a province or territory sends you a “notification of interest” to your account, you contact them directly.
    • You apply to their Express Entry stream:
      • If you’re nominated, the province will offer it to you through your account, and you accept it electronically.
  • In both cases:
    • You must meet the eligibility requirements of the province or territory. And,
    • You must submit an Express Entry profile and show that you meet the minimum criteria for Express Entry, including being eligible for one of the immigration programs it covers.
    • If you are invited to apply, you submit an electronic application to IRCC.
