The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows provinces and territories to nominate applicants in order to meet their specific employment and business needs. PNP targets skilled workers of occupations in high demand, international graduates and business people.
Requirements and application process vary depending on the province. Provinces currently participating in the PNP are Alberta, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, Ontario, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Yukon and Northwest Territories.
Many provinces also have their own Express Entry streams that expedite the process for those who submit an Express Entry Profile.
