Canada aspirants are quite familiar with the Provincial Nominee Programs. Getting a provincial nomination can put you on the fast track to a Canadian Permanent Residency.
There are almost eighty different pathways to Canadian PR. The Provincial Nominee Programs allow provinces in Canada to select candidates that meet their eligibility requirements and labour needs.
Many PNPs in Canada are aligned with the Federal Express Entry Program. A successful provincial nomination gets a candidate an additional 600 points on their CRS score. This multiplies the chances of getting an ITA for Canadian Permanent Residency.
There are more than 400,000 jobs vacant in Canada. The country has, hence, increased the PNP intake target to 67,800 in 2020.
