Every province and territory in Canada participates in its own Provincial Nominee Program. Each program under this system is designed to help meet the province or territory’s unique immigrant requirements.
The Government of Canada sends out a certain number of invitations chosen from the pool of PNP applicants each year. These provincial programs are popular because they offer prospective immigrants a speedy route toward receiving permanent residency.
Prospective applicants may be able to apply through any of the 80+ provincial nominee programs offered in the country.
This is assuming they meet the eligibility requirements for each one. Successful applicants may eventually be eligible for Canadian citizenship after receiving their permanent residence.
