Ontario, British Columbia and Manitoba invite candidates this week in latest PNP draws

Ontario, British Columbia and Manitoba invite candidates this week in latest PNP draws

This week, lotteries for the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) were placed in three provinces. Except for Quebec and Nunavut, each of Canada's provinces and territories runs its own PNP to identify potential economic immigrants who they believe have the best likelihood of establishing in the province, becoming financially established, and making a contribution to the local economy. Quebec and the federal government have a special arrangement that allows it complete control over all of its economic immigration programs. The PNP is the primary route for people moving to Canada for economic reasons. The Immigration Levels Plan aims to admit 117,500 new permanent residents to Canada annually through the PNP by 2025, which is greater than Express Entry (114,000).

demonstrating the capacity to establish oneself economically

A PNP candidate must submit an application to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in order to get status as a permanent resident of Canada after receiving a provincial nomination.

According to IRCC, they evaluate applications for permanent residence using three key factors. The applicant must:

- possess the capacity to develop themselves economically in Canada.

- be listed in a nomination certificate issued by a provincial or territorial authority.

- They want to stay in the province or area where they were nominated.

- Because the application for provincial nomination and the one for permanent residency -frequently share facts, in the majority of cases, receiving a nomination from a province is -considered sufficient to demonstrate the potential to become economically established.

However, if IRCC notices an applicant is solely dependent on family members for financial support or if there is a perceived skills gap between a candidate's job or job offer and their resume, they may have more inquiries. This may have an effect on a candidate's expressed intent to live in the province making the nomination. Participants in the PNP must be able to demonstrate their intent to reside and conduct business in the province of nomination. The candidate will be invited to respond if the IRCC finds cause to doubt this aim.

On April 11, Ontario held a draw for 295 applicants in the Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills stream. Candidates have to receive at least a 30.

According to the province, bringing in more qualified immigrants will help fill labor gaps and boost the economy. By 2025, Ontario anticipates receiving 18,000 newcomers through the PNP.
