process of that state:

Canada PNP Process 2018

The Provincial Nominee Program or PNPs are an integral part of the

Express Entry program and one of the most cost and time efficient pathways to
move to Canada. All Canadian provinces, except Quebec, have a stake in
the national federal Express Entry process and select their respective candidates
in the same format as that of the national federal program with minor variations as
required for each province. Having a provincial nomination in your name virtually
guarantees you a selection in the upcoming Express Entry draws and is of
significant point weightage in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). 3/5

What are the unique features of Provincial Nominee


Provincial Nominee Programs have been designed to further

expedite the immigration process to Canada. They offer specialized immigration to
particular provinces of Canada and are customized to suit the economic and
social requirements of each province. The following are the most unique features
of the Provincial Nominee Programs which distinguish them from the Express
Entry program:

Custom Immigration

As any immigration consultant worth his salt will tell you, PNPs offer customized
immigration options to Express Entry applicants. This means that you can directly
apply for the province you want to settle in and if selected have the opportunity to
move to the province of Canada and begin your life there.

Point-based Assessment

The PNPs calculate the viability of an immigration candidate on the bases of

several factors. They use a downward scaling system wherein points are allotted
according to the desirability of a candidate’s attributes. While this point-based
system is similar to that of the Express Entry program, they differ from it in sense
that their assessments are either out of 100 or 1200 points.

Also, some provinces provide extra points for choice of region

of settlement. So, if you want to settle in a high-point area, you will be getting
more points than if you were to settle in a low-point area. On the other hand,
some provinces like Manitoba (check?) deduct points for applicant studying in or
having work experience in other provinces.

NOC-based Selection

This is perhaps the most unique and lucrative feature of Canada immigration
through PNPs. Each PNP makes the final decision to invite a candidate to move
to Canada on the basis of their viability in the provincial economy. For this, the
provinces make use of the National Occupation Classification (NOC) index where
the job vacancies are listed category-wise and this is helpful in determining the
local viability of each client. The most interesting aspect of PNPs based
immigrations is that you don’t actually need an active job offer to immigrate to a
particular province. As long as there is a job vacancy in the province for which you
qualify, you can migrate there without needing a valid job offer.

Provincial Nominee Programs are unique in the sense that they do

not explicitly require a job offer for a candidate to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA). If
a candidate shows that they have the required working proficiency levels and
there is a direct need for their specific skill set in the local provincial Canadian
economy, then they can easily secure a provincial nomination from the province of
their choice. It is advised that you go thoroughly through the individual programs
listed above to see which province would suit you best.
