Canada is considered the most favorable point of embarkation of new life. Every year, millions of applications are filed from India for immigration through Express Entry Program, but only few candidates get ITA, as only high scoring profiles are selected. Howbeit, there is another route for the applicants who are not selected through ENP, i.e. PNP (Provincial Nominee Program). Immigration to Canada becomes comparatively easier through PNP than Express Entry Program. The reason being the relaxed eligibility criteria offered by particular provinces for the skilled job seekers to get permanent residence (PR) in the province they longed for.
It is important to note that almost all Canadian provinces have an Express Entry linked Workstream and there are 2 different ways you can apply for Canada PR via a PNP:
|STEPS||1st Method||2nd Method|
|Contact a province or territory and request nomination under their Express Entry stream||Make an Express Entry profile and indicate in your profile, which provinces and territories you are interested in|
|If the province accepts your request for a nomination, you can make an Express Entry profile and show that you have been nominated||Once you receive a “notification of interest” from a province or territory in your account, you can contact them directly|
|You will receive your nomination electronically through your account, which you will need to accept||Apply to their Express Entry stream|
|In case they select you for a nomination, they will send the nomination electronically through your account. You just have to accept it|
As you can tell, in both the cases, you will need to create an Express Entry profile. So, it’s best to create your Express Entry profile as soon as you can. It anyway offers you the benefit of access into the Express Entry pool with a large number of Canadian employers looking for skilled people to recruit.
All the Canadian provinces have their own PNP, with the exception of Quebec, which has its own program on similar lines, known as – Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP).
