Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) are the nomination programs for all theprovinces and territories of Canada. Each province has different demand list for labor shortages, thus there are different requirements for all the provinces upon their specific climate conditions and demand list. These nomination programs permit provinces and territories to nominate the eligible foreign workers, who wish to migrate in Canada and are ready to settling in thatregion.
PNPs are the well sought-after programs to boost the Province’s economy by fulfilling the employer’s labor shortages and also the quickest choice to obtain the Permanent Residency of Canada.
MOST OF THE PNSs ARE JOB OFFER BASED PROGRAMS.
Steps of PNP
These programs are known as nominee programs in light of the fact that the provinces can’t approve an individual for permanent residency all alone yet can just nominate a person. An ultimate decision is always taken at national level by the government.
It is a two stage process
Stage 1 – The first most important step is the approval of nomination by the province.
Stage 2 – The nominated applicant selected by a province has tosubmit the application for Permanent Residency to the Federal Government. The final decision rests with the Federal government.
Express Entry PNP
There are few PNPs, which are linked with the express entry system and the candidates selected through a PNP which is linked with Express Entry, the candidate claims 600 extra Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. This ensures that the individual will get Invitation to Apply (ITA) in the express entry draw and will have every chance to get PR subject to authenticity of documents already mentioned in the profile, verification of Police Records and clean medical records.
The individual nominated for PNP without express entry, needs to submit a paper based application for permanent residence as a provincial nominee.
THE PAPER BASED APPLICATION TAKES MORE TIME THAN THE EXPRESS ENTRY LINKED PROGAM.
