Provincial Nominee Program of Canada is one of its popular streams. Canada started this program back in 1998. This program invited around 200 people to Canada for the first time. But now, this program is quite famous among immigrants worldwide. Moreover, this program now supports the intake of around 80,000 new permanent residents every year.
Around 3,744 immigration candidates have received invitations under PNP in the last month. Canadian provinces and territories participate in this program to set a number of economic immigrants every year. Moreover, the provinces can nominate the candidates for Canadian PR.
PNP Immigration Results in November 2020
Every month, different provinces send invitations to many hopeful immigrants. However, the number of invited immigrants can vary from month to month and province to province. This November, Canadian provinces invited many hopeful immigrants to process the next round of the immigration process.
Currently, there are more than 80 PNP streams that are working in 11 different provinces and territories. However, each stream is designed for attracting immigrants who meet the specific labor market and economic needs of those regions.
However, most participating provinces have at least one Provincial Nominee Program stream that works with the federal Express Entry System. Moreover, Express Entry is a famous and primary source of Canada’s economic immigration.
Through this program, a province can select candidates from Express Entry. However, the candidates receive invitations from provinces to apply for a provincial nomination. Therefore, these streams are helpful for provinces in nominating the candidates under Express Entry System.
Express Entry manages the pool of immigrants for three major economic immigration categories:
- Federal Skilled Worker Class
- Canadian Experience Class
- Federal Skilled Trades Class
Express Entry candidates who receive a nomination from any province or territory also get 600 CRS points.
PNP streams that don’t work under Express Entry are known as “Base PNPs.” However, these streams can also nominate candidates, and they can also pursue permanent residence.
