Provincial Nominee Program
Provincial Nominee Programs are devised by provinces of Canada to meet their demand of listed occupations for the respective year. They nominate/invite PR applicants for their province provided the applicants meet the skill, age, language proficiency and adaptability requirements or any other prerequisites listed by the province.
Provinces and territories operate the Provincial Nominee Program and nominate applicants through the Express Entry pool. Applicants who are selected by the PT (Provinces and Territories) nomination receive an additional 600 CRS – Comprehensive Ranking System points that will trigger an invitation to apply.
Each province has specific immigration programs and criteria. This means that you will have to meet the tailored criteria to be nominated for the particular province. Provinces like Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and Manitoba have their own Occupation In Demand list. Applicant should fall under that occupation list to be able to apply for that province. Applicants are required to portray their intention to live in that Province.
