Four Canadian provinces, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and New Brunswick have invited candidates in the most recently published Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw results.
The provincial nominee program is the cleverest and well-known doorways toward permanent residency to canada. Multiple provisions under welcome the number of candidates to boost their economy, etc. By the end of 2025, Canada will welcome 117,500 new permanent residents under the PNP, according to the Immigration Levels Plan 2023–2025.
The PNP is possible because immigration is a shared duty between the federal and provincial governments, while Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has the final word on who qualifies as a permanent resident. The province is also able to address deficiencies in the provincial labour force by implementing a programme that enables the provinces to choose the competent arrivals they believe have the highest chance of becoming economically established.
The maximum number of nominees a province can change gradually. For 2023, a total of 105,000 PNP applicants are intended to get ITAs. The 11 provinces and territories with PNP programmes (Quebec and Nunavut don’t have PNPs) are then given a share of the available places into their respective provisions.
For instance, Newfoundland and Labrador just revealed that it has been given 3,050 nominations in 2023, which is double the 1,500 it received from Ontario in 2022.
