The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows participating provinces and territories of Canada to nominate immigrants who wish to settle permanently in their jurisdiction.
You could qualify if you are:
- a recent graduate from an eligible postsecondary institution in Canada;
- a skilled worker in an eligible profession or a trade;
- an entrepreneur or investor.
Use the information below as a starting point to connect with provincial or territorial departments responsible for immigration to Canada to determine the program requirements and determine your eligibility for the PNP.
