The PNP program or Provincial Nominee Program identifies new immigrants that have greater skills, work experience, education and can offer a greater contribution to Canada’s economy. The Canadian government allows a series of provincial immigration authorities to handpick nominated professionals who can enter their local economy and job market quickly.
If there is a direct need in the job market for someone of appropriate job experience or educational background, these nominees will be granted an Express or Non-Express Entry system. Each province will have its own highlighted groups which will vary based on the economic direction of the province, service and skill gaps at any given time. Certain groups will be selected based on the current fit and the Provincial Nominee Program will be the one of the ways to become a Permanent Resident.
