British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and New Brunswick invite PNP candidates this week

The most recent Provincial Nominee Programme (PNP) draw results have been made public, and four Canadian provinces have invited candidates. The PNP is the most well-known route for economic immigration to Canada. By the end of 2025, Canada will welcome 117,500 new permanent residents under the PNP, according to the Immigration Levels Plan 2023–2025. The PNP is possible because immigration is a shared duty between the federal and provincial governments, while Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has the final say on who qualifies as a permanent resident.

The province is also able to target deficiencies in the provincial labor force by implementing a program that enables the provinces to choose the competent arrivals they believe have the highest chance of becoming economically established. Both administrations view this as a useful instrument for boosting Canada's economy. The maximum number of nominees a province may submit varies annually. For 2023, 105,000 PNP applicants are the intended total. The 11 provinces and territories with PNP programs (Quebec and Nunavut don't have PNPs) are then given a share of the available places. For instance, Newfoundland and Labrador just revealed that it was given 3,050 nominations in 2023, double the 1,500 it received from Ontario.

Results for provincial immigration from April 29 to May 5 in British Columbia

Through the BC PNP, British Columbia invited more than 171 candidates on May 2. Four distinct draws, three of which were targeted and one of which was broad, were used to invite candidates. If they met the minimum cut-off scores of 104 (for skilled workers) or 107 (for international graduates) in the general draw, applicants from the Skilled Worker and International Graduate Streams (including Express Entry candidates) were asked to apply. If they received a minimum score of 85, applicants for the Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled streams may also have received an invitation.

A cut-off score of 60 was necessary for each of the three targeted draws. In a draw for early childhood educators and assistants (NOC 42202), there were 22 invitees, 16 of whom had healthcare occupations, and just four or fewer from other priority occupations. Candidates who were Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled were not drawn in the targeted draws.


On May 3, Saskatchewan held two separate lotteries for invitations to 1032 hopefuls. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Programme (SINP)'s Express Entry stream selected 739 of applicants for invitations. The Occupations-In-Demand stream was used to invite the final 293 candidates. Candidates in both disciplines required an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) with a minimum score of 68. Throughout 2023, the province held draws once a month.

New Brunswick

The PNP draw results for April have been made public in New Brunswick. The province normally extends invitations to candidates throughout the month, publishing all results at once.
