A common misconception that you will often come across is that some of the provinces are easy to immigrate. While that is certainly true, there is one condition that applies to all the candidates. And that is meeting the criteria of all the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Finding an ideal PNP stream for you is a little difficult. Here is the role of an immigration consultancy that comes into the picture. The right fit of the program depends upon your situation and the skills you offer as per the local labor market.
Most of the regions in Canada have their own PNP stream except Nunavut and Quebec. Both the provinces follow their own pathways with specific requirements that are tailored to meet a particular category of immigrants, skilled workers, unskilled workers, entrepreneurs, or international students.
There are almost 80 streams available across all the provinces and streams that participate in PNP. When a candidate receives a provincial nomination from the stream that relates to Canada’s Express Entry system, an addition of 600 points is added towards the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. If you earn this set of points, then you are bound to receive an invitation from the Government of Canada to apply for permanent residency.
There are multiple options available depending upon your personal situation.
No Job Offer
The OINP Human Capital Priorities stream is one of the most popular opinions for those candidates who do not have a job offer. One might not need a job offer but an active profile in Express Entry will work.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program is another program for international applicants without a job offer. There are two streams linked with it. The first one is the Express Entry profile and another one is the Occupation-In-Demand that does not have any requirement. It fills the job workers who can fulfill the requirement in the labor market.
Last comes the NSNP which is the most innovative provincial nominee program. NSNP falls under four streams to select Express Entry candidates. The NSNP searches for the Express Entry pool and identifies candidates with work experience in specific occupations.
Do You Know French?
Do you know French? Then here is something interesting for you. NO! we are not talking about Quebec. The ONIP Express Entry linked French-Speaking Skilled Worker permits the province to search for the Express Entry candidates who speak French and have strong command over the English language. The stream is quite active over the past six months issuing close to 700 notifications of interest.
Are You A Tech Worker?
For tech workers two most crucial pathways are through the provinces Ontario and British Columbia. Ontario regularly conducts Tech Draws that are related to the skilled workers who have experience in the technology field. For instance, they could be computer engineers and web designers. There is no job offer required.
The BC Tech Pilot draw selects the immigration candidates on basis of provincial nomination weekly basis. For this, a job offer with the 29 listed designation is mandatorily required.
Do You Have Experience in Province and Territory?
There are certain provinces and territories that benefit individuals with experience in the province or territory. The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) Skilled Worker in Manitoba and Skilled Worker Overseas streams both have people working in Manitoba as well as possess educational experience. Additionally, there are three streams under International Education Stream for the individuals who studied and graduated in Manitoba.
PNP’s are the best way of getting Permanent Residency status in Canada. Individuals who are planning to immigrate to Canada must consult immigration consultants for the expert recommendation on the basis of the profile.
