How the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) works

This program is for workers who:

  • have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of a specific province or territory
  • want to live in that province, and
  • want to become permanent residents of Canada

Each province and territoryFootnote* has its own “streams” (immigration programs that target certain groups) and requirements. For example, in a program stream, provinces and territories may target:

  • students
  • business people
  • skilled workers
  • semi-skilled workers

Eligibility criteria

The eligibility criteria for the PNP is different based on whether you apply through the paper-based (non-Express Entry streams) or Express Entry (Express Entry Streams) process.

If you are applying through the paper-based process

You must meet the minimum requirements of one of the province or territory’s non-Express Entry streams.

You must be nominated under that stream.

If you are applying through Express Entry

You must meet the minimum requirements of a province or territory’s Express Entry PNP stream.

You must be nominated under that stream.

One should make an Express Entry profile and reveals that it meets the basic criteria for Express Entry, including the necessities of one of the immigration programs it covers.
