Candidates are invited through a variety of programs in the provinces of British Columbia and Manitoba.
About PNP, it is one of the immigration programs of Canada launched in 1998. It nearly welcomes 80,000 immigrants per year. All Canadian provinces and territories process their own PNP programs except Quebec and Nunavut. The federal and provincial governments of Canada see PNP as a major tool for the economic development of the country. It’s the reason why we witness the rise in PNP admissions.
Though PNP is not the direct solution to getting a permanent residence, it can be the first step towards increasing the CRS score to easily obtain permanent resident status.
For instance, PNP applicants with Express Entry profiles who receive a nomination get extra 600 points added to their score. Additionally, they become qualified to apply for a round of invitations specific to the PNP.
