The Canadian Provincial Nomination Immigration Program

The Canadian Provincial Nomination Immigration Program allows the individual Provinces to select a number of immigrants each year that have a genuine intention to settle there. Provincial Nomination is one of the immigration procedures offered where the province or territory has more control over the immigrants they select. Persons who immigrate to Canada under the Provincial Nominee Program have the skills, education and work experience needed to make an immediate economic contribution to the province or territory that nominates them In order to apply under the Provincial Nominee Program, applicants must be nominated by a Canadian province or territory.

Each Canadian province or territory will assess your application based on their immigration needs, whether you can fill the labour market gaps and other criteria specific to each province. Provincial Nominees are not assessed on the six selection factors of the Federal program.

First you must apply to the province where you wish to settle and complete the provincial nomination process. If you are successfully nominated by a province you then have to make a separate application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada for permanent residence.

The Provincial Nomination program can speed up the process of application, however the provinces only nominate a limited number of people under this scheme each year.
