Provincial Nominee Program is one of the streams through which you can immigrate to Canada as a Permanent Residence through the Express Entry Process. In PNP, a Canadian province or territory is required to nominate you. It usually takes around 13–15 months for the entire PNP process. You can find updated processing times on the Government of Canada website. The process can be divided into 2 steps —
- Choosing a province where you want to live and apply for nomination
- Once you get the nomination, Apply to IRCC for PR.
Choose a province or territory
The first thing you have to do is decide which Province do you want to live in and apply to that province for nomination. They will review your application based on their needs and if you really plan to live there.
To be nominated by a province or territory, you must follow the instructions on their website and contact them directly:
- British Columbia
- New Brunswick
- Newfoundland and Labrador
- Northwest Territories
- Nova Scotia
- Prince Edward Island
The criteria by province and territory vary and can change without notice.
Apply for Permanent Residence
Once you are nominated by a province or territory you can apply to IRCC(Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) for permanent residence. The application package includes the instruction guide and all the forms you need to fill out after a province or territory has nominated you.
