The Canadian government provides a shared power to both federal and provincial governments to select and invite skilled foreign nationals who are capable of contributing to Canada’s economy. There are different immigration pathways managed by both the governments, however, the Express Entry and Provincial Nominee Programs are the two most popular ones.

In this, we’ll be discussing about Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which allows aspiring individuals and families a pathway to live and work permanently in a particular Canadian province or territory. In fact, PNP programs are designed to ensure that the talented and skilled new comers can be distributed uniformly in each province and help the provincial economy grow.

The PNPs are quite popular among immigrants who majorly fail to achieve the required federal CRS score requirement. Since each province runs its unique PNP program with different streams, there are a few provinces that provide easiest and fastest options.

Let’s find out more about those provinces.

To qualify, an applicant must score a minimum of 60 points out of 110 points on the SINP points grid.
