Candidates may submit an application for nomination under the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) in five Canadian provinces.
The applicants for economic immigration that have the best chances of integrating successfully into the provincial labour force are chosen by provinces through the PNP. In order to identify these candidates, provincial governments either choose them from among the applicants in the federal Express Entry pool or accept applications from people who apply to the province directly.
Because immigration is a shared duty of the federal and provincial governments, the PNP is possible. Except for Quebec and Nunavut, which don't have PNPs, the federal government allots a certain number of nominations to each province each year. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) intends to accept 105,550 new permanent residents through the PNP by the end of 2023.
