A Fast Track Route to get PR

Canadian provinces and territories are in a position to nominate a certain number of candidates through the Express Entry system to meet local and provincial labour market needs. The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) allow Canadian provinces and territories to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and who are interested in settling in a particular province. Most PNPs contain at least one program which is aligned with the federal Express Entry selection system.

Candidates in the Express Entry pool who obtain a nomination from a province are awarded additional 600 points under the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System), out of a possible total of 1,200. When these additional points are added to a candidate’s points, it will immediately result in an ITA (Invitation To Apply) for permanent residence being issued to the candidate at a subsequent draw from the Express Entry pool.

Candidates eligible to enter the Express Entry pool may either enter the pool first and then be nominated by a province or territory, or be nominated by a province or territory before completing an online Express Entry profile and entering the Express Entry pool.

Each PNP has different streams that applicants can apply under and they are:

  • Skilled Workers;
  • Semi-skilled Workers;
  • Business/Investors;
  • International Student Graduates; and
  • Family/Community Connections.
