Provincial Nominee Program
The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) allow Canadian provinces and territories to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and who are interested in settling in a particular province.
Each Canadian province and territory (except Nunavut and Quebec, which has a different selection system) has its own unique Provincial Nominee Program. Each PNP has at least one immigration stream that is aligned with the federal Express Entry immigration selection system.
These streams are known as ‘enhanced’ nomination streams and award selected Express Entry candidates an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points.
With more than 80 PNP streams available, discovering the PNP option that’s best for you can be challenging. The Canada PNP Finder is designed to help you discover your PNP pathway to Canadian permanent residence and track the latest Canada PNP updates and news.
