Canada PNP Weekly Roundup: October 27, 2023

The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) grant provinces and territories the authority to select individuals who can contribute to the enhancement of their local communities. This article outlines the results of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws conducted during the last week of October 2023.

What Are Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP)?

Provincial Nominee Programs  allow provinces in Canada to establish their specific criteria for various immigration pathways. Except for Quebec and Nunavut, each province in Canada operates different nominee programs tailored to their unique needs. These programs often target international graduates, entrepreneurs, and professionals with experience in different occupations. The selection criteria can vary depending on factors such as labour market demands and demographic gaps within the province.

For instance, Ontario’s French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream  aims to attract skilled workers proficient in French to bolster the Francophone population. Immigration through Provincial Nominee Programs contributes significantly to Canada’s overall economic immigration numbers. In 2022, out of a quarter of a million economic immigrants targeted, approximately 83,500 spots were reserved for applicants applying through the Provincial Nominee Program.

How Do Provincial Nominee Programs Operate?

Numerous Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) conduct draws where they invite candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence nomination. Some PNPs require candidates to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile to be eligible for these draws. In contrast, certain programs directly invite candidates from the Express Entry pool, even if they haven’t formally applied for consideration.

 

The frequency and the quantity of invitations depend entirely on each of the provinces. These are the provinces that held draws this week:

British Columbia

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP), a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), is a collection of immigration pathways enabling foreign nationals to become Canadian Permanent Residents in BC. The PNP is strategically designed to attract immigrants to work in industries that will benefit the province, with different profiles like: skilled workers, workers in sectors with labour shortages, entrepreneurs, and investors. The province operates several immigration streams divided into two categories:

 

Bitish Columbia held one draw this week on October 24,  for the Skilled Worker, International Graduate (includes EEBC option) Stream:

September 26, 2023 Draw:

A total of 1220 persons were invited to apply. The applicants also met the following criteria:

Some invitations were also addressed to people meeting the following criterion:

  • They had a valid job offer outside the territory of the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal.
