CIC Guidance (Post ITA)

Provincial Nominee Program or Canada PNP exists because Canadian provinces have their own nominee programs that are designed to encourage skilled migrants to settle in those provinces. These programs are designed to meet the specific needs of employers and to encourage capital investment for that specific geographic area.

To apply under the Provincial Nominee Program, applicants must be nominated by a Canadian province or territory. Under this program applicants should have the skills, education and work experience needed to make an immediate economic contribution to the province or territory that nominates them.

Persons coming in through this program are provided permanent resident status and ultimately the opportunity to apply for Canadian citizenship.

All the Canadian Provinces do not provide Provincial Nomination Schemes; however, most provinces have an agreement with the Government of Canada that allows them to nominate immigrants who wish to settle in that province.

To be eligible to apply for the Provincial Nomination Scheme, the applicants have to pass three stages:

  • Job Offer– Applicants must have a valid job offer from a Canadian company based in the province to which the candidates intend to migrate. Alternatively, candidates can obtain a nomination certificate if they have a close relative living in that province.
  • Provincial Government Approval– The job offer should be approved by the relevant provincial government. The applicants are assessed against the migration requirement of the particular province. Candidates will also need to be able to prove that they have a genuine interest to reside and work in the province.
  • Application for Permanent Residency- Once the applicant receives a nomination from the particular province, they should make their application for permanent residency with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).

Applicants need to prove that they have enough money to support themselves and their dependants after they arrive in Canada.

Provincial Nominee applications are given preference over other skilled visa applicants by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).

At present, the following provinces and territories in Canada have Provincial Nomination Schemes:

  • Alberta
  • British Columbia
  • Manitoba
  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland and Labrador
  • Nova Scotia
  • Ontario
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Saskatchewan
  • Yukon
