Review of the various workers’ immigration programs of the different Canadian provinces.

There are currently ten provinces and three territories in Canada, each of them having their own immigration programs and policies. These provincial immigration channels are more commonly known as Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP).

Are you a good candidate?

With so many PNPs to choose from, it is difficult to figure out which programs you are eligible to and what the criteria are. However, the ideal candidate usually fit into one of these categories:

  • Has recently worked in Canada or currently works there with a valid working permit;
  • Is currently in the Express Entry group. Is fulfilling the criteria of eligibility for one of the programs listed on Express Entry;
  • Has a link with the province, through years as a student in the province, prior working experience or a formal job offer;
  • Has a family member living in the province in question, which can help for some of the PNPs.

Please do note that even if PNP you are interested in are listed on Express Entry, you first need to submit a letter of expression of interest in order to gain access to the Express Entry list.
