Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs)

Provinces and territories are key partners; potential candidates can be nominated through EXPRESS ENTRY POOL based on their regional labor market needs. When an Express Entry candidate is nominated through a Provincial Nominee Program, they will be invited to apply for permanent residence.

Candidates who have a nomination receive an additional 600 points in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which is usually sufficient to trigger an invitation to apply (ITA) at the soonest round of invitations.

Each province and territory has its own “streams” (immigration programs that target certain groups) and requirements. For example, in a program stream, provinces and territories may target:

  • Students
  • Business people
  • Skilled workers


Target Immigration Services will help you to apply depending on which Provincial Nominee Program stream you’re eligible for.

Choose a province or territory

To be nominated by a province or territory, you must follow the instructions on their website and contact them directly:

  • Alberta
  • British Columbia
  • Manitoba
  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland and Labrador
  • Northwest Territories
  • Nova Scotia
  • Ontario
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Saskatchewan

The criteria by province and territory vary and can change without notice. You must meet the eligibility requirements of the province or territory.
