What are Provincial Nominee Programs?

Provincial Nominee Programs allow each Canadian province to set the requirements for their own immigration streams. Each Canadian province, except Quebec and Nunavut, has different nominee programs that operate in different ways. Many have programs that target international graduates, businesspeople, or workers. Other targeted factors usually depend on labour market or demographic gaps of the province. For example, Ontario’s French-Speaking Skilled Worker stream targets skilled workers with strong proficiency in French to help increase their Francophone population.

Immigration through a Provincial Nominee Program makes up a large portion of Canada’s total economic immigration. Of a total of 241,850 economic immigrants targeted for 2022, 83,500 are reserved for those applying under a Provincial Nominee Program.

How do Provincial Nominee Programs draws work?

Many Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) hold draws in which they invite candidates to apply to be nominated for Canadian permanent residence. Some PNPs require candidates to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile to be considered in these draws. Other programs invite candidates directly from the Express Entry pool that haven’t even applied for consideration.

The British Columbia Nominee Program (BCPNP) held a total of 16 nominee draws this July 2022, 14 of which targeted a set of in-demand occupations.

British Columbia issued more than 635 invitations in Expression of Interest (EOI) draws this July.
