New PNP draws

Canada is slowly recovering from the imposed travel restrictions which have had a tremendous impact of immigration levels in Canada. However, the nomination draws have picked up steam and quite a few provincial programs are actively inviting candidates to apply for provincial nominations. A provincial nomination is seen as a guaranteed ticket to permanent residence in Canada. 

Here are some active provincial programs last week:

Active Canadian Province PNP Streams Number of Invitations
Prince Edward Island Express Entry & Labour Impact categories 345 provincial nominations
British Columbia Tech Pilot 74 provincial nominations
Saskatchewan Express Entry & Occupation In-Demand  535 provincial nominations
Nova Scotia Express Entry, targeted automotive industry workers N/A
Manitoba Skilled Workers in Manitoba, International Student Graduates, Skilled Workers Overseas 189 provincial nominations

In addition to the above, the newly re-elected government in New Brunswick aims to increase immigration by expanding the annual allocations to 10,000 as against the present 7,500 nominations per annum.

Options for Tech Workers

Canada offers excellent immigration options for immigration of tech workers. Such candidates may usually include skilled workers with occupation/work experience in Computer Engineering, Software Developing, IT Experts, Electronics, Mechanical, Civil Engineering, Database Analysts, Graphics Designing, Audio & Video Recording Technicians, etc.


Express Entry pathway still remains to be the fastest options for permanent residence in Canada. There are dedicated Tech occupations under several Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). In addition to skilled workers, business entrepreneurs having experience in tech occupations can run a business in Canada with Start-Up Visa options.

Immigration Forecast

The coming month of October will decide the fate of Canadian immigration for years to come. Two important events are slated to happen around the same time- the new mandate immigration letter & Immigration levels plan for 2021-2023. 

The pandemic may have accelerated the need for more immigrants in Canada to rebuild its economy. Which is why, in a rare occurrence, the Immigration Minister is expected to announce its revised Immigration Levels Plan for the second time in the same year.   

Canada had previously announced its Immigration Levels Plan for 2020-2022 just a week before the travel ban kicked-in due to pandemic. 

Following this is the new mandate letter from the Prime Minister to his minister for immigration. This letter is said to emphasize on coming up with new policy changes for increased immigration and give an overview how the government would process applications moving forward in the wake of the pandemic.
