Qualifying for Canada Permanent Residency with Provincial Nominee Program

The federal immigration department is solely responsible for issuing permanent residency. A provincial nomination may, however, fast-track the total time taken to receive an invitation to apply for Canada Permanent Residency.

Ontario Immigration Nominee Program (OINP) issues provincial nominations to eligible skilled workers under its famous Human Capital Priorities stream. The province also invites candidates already registered in the federal pool under its Tech draw.

Those with provincial nominations like the one from Express Entry Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream or Ontario Tech Draw or Express Entry Skilled Trades stream will get preferential treatment to obtain Canada permanent residency.
