Provincial nominees

Most provinces and territories in Canada can nominate immigrants through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). These immigrants must have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of that province or territory, and must want to live there.

Each province and territory Footnote * has its own “streams” (immigration programs that target certain groups) and criteria for their PNP. For example, in a program stream, provinces and territories may target students, business people, skilled workers or semi-skilled workers.

Since January 1, 2015, many provinces and territories have launched new Express Entry streams.

Who can apply as a provincial nominee?

Each province and territory has its own streams and criteria for their Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). These can change without notice. You can find out more on the website of the province or territory that interests you.

The eligibility criteria for the PNP is different based on whether you apply through the paper-based (non-Express Entry streams) or Express Entry (Express Entry streams) process.

If you are applying through the paper-based process:

  • You must meet the minimum requirements of one of the province or territory’s non-Express Entry streams.

  • You must be nominated under that stream.

If you are applying through Express Entry

  • You must meet the minimum requirements of a province or territory’s Express Entry PNP stream.

  • You must be nominated under that stream.

  • You must create an Express Entry profile and show that you meet the minimum criteria for Express Entry, including the requirements of one of the immigration programs it covers.
