Canada PNP

Canada is a favorite destination for individuals wanting to migrate to another country. The immigration friendly policies of the country and the many job opportunities here are encouraging migrants to come and settle here.

Many migrants opt for a PR visa when they wish to settle in Canada. One of the options to migrate to Canada is a Permanent Resident (PR) visa. This visa is valid for five years and can be renewed.

The PR visa offers social security, free education and health care among other benefits.

Canada offers various immigration programs through which you can apply for a PR visa. A popular option is the Canadian Provincial Nominee Program or the PNP.

Canada offers nearly 80 different PNP programs, some of the popular PNP programs include:

1.Alberta PNP
2.Manitoba PNP
3.New Brunswick PNP
4.British Columbia PNP
5.Nova Scotia PNP
6.Ontario PNP
7.Saskatchewan PNP
8.Prince Edward Island PNP

The PNP programs are designed to meet the individual immigration needs of provinces and meet the labor shortages they are facing.

With this in mind, the Canadian government has continuously increased its targets for the PNP program. It has set a target of 67,800 for 2020.

The government is expected to increase the approval of new permanent resident visas through the PNP program for 2020 and 2021.

It has set a target of PR visas of 67,800 for 2020 and 71,300 for 2021 through the PNP program.

Eligibility criteria for the PNP

Canada immigration programs including the PNP works on a points-based system. An applicant must score a minimum number of points to be able to apply for a PR visa. Here are the various criteria under which you can score points to meet the eligibility requirement:

  • Age
  • Education
  • Work experience
  • Language ability
  • Adaptability
  • Arranged employment

Application for a PR visa through the PNP program requires the applicants have some connection to the province. You can be either working in that province or have studied there. You can be eligible if you have a job offer from an employer in the province.

Steps to apply

If you opt for the PNP to apply for your PR visa, these are the steps:

  • You must apply in the province or region where you desire to settle.
  • You could be nominated by the province to apply for a PR visa if your profile meets the eligibility criteria.
  • You can apply for your PR visa after you are nominated by a province.

The criteria for evaluating the PR application can  differ for each province.

The PNP is an option you can choose if your CRS points score is not high enough and you still get your provincial nomination. When making your PNP application you can choose a province from where it will be easy to get a nomination based on your profile.

Express Entry linked PNPS

If you are applying under such a PNP, you can add 600 CRS points to your Express Entry application. This increases your possibility of getting an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for your PR visa in the subsequent invitation round. Those wishing to apply for such PNP programs must first create an Express Entry profile.
