Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia invite immigration candidates through provincial programs

Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia invite immigration candidates through provincial programs

Candidates for immigration are invited by Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia through provincial initiatives. For 2022, Quebec has invited the most candidates it has ever received. Candidates for provincial immigration programs have received invitations to apply from Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia this week.

With the exception of Quebec and Nunavut, the majority of Canadian provinces and territories run their own provincial nomination programs. Interested candidates may receive invitations from these programs to submit an application for a provincial nomination.

The immigration policies of Quebec are different from those of Canada and are handled by the province. Since its inception in 1998, the PNP has gained a great deal of notoriety and now handles more than 80,000 PR admissions annually. 

The federal and provincial governments of Canada have increased the number of PNP admissions because they see it as a useful tool for advancing the nation's economic development. Provincial nomination can serve as the initial step toward obtaining permanent residence from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, despite the fact that it is not the same as one in and of itself (IRCC).


Ontario invited 823 individuals in the Masters' Graduate stream of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program to submit applications on September 20. (OINP). Candidates had to receive a 33 or above to be considered.

Candidates in this stream must also fulfill a minimum set of requirements for eligibility, such as the following:

- Must hold a master's degree from an Ontario university that is recognized.

- A CLB language level of seven or above is required (English or French)

- Must have spent at least one year of the previous two years legally residing in Ontario.

The majority of immigrants arrive in Canada's most populated province, Ontario, each year. Additionally, it offers the most invites to apply of any PNP in Canada. Ontario is permitted to extend invites to 9,750 applicants for 2022.


On September 8, 2022, Quebec asked 1,202 qualified workers to submit applications for permanent selection. The Arima Expression of Interest system's tenth and largest draw will take place in 2022. Quebec normally waits for one to two weeks before announcing the results of a draw.

Invitations were sent out by the Ministry of Immigration, Refugee, and Integration (MIFI) to immigrants who submitted applications through the Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program (QSWP).

Candidates had to have Arrima Expression of Interest profiles with minimum scores of 620. Those who get an invitation from Quebec to apply for permanent selection have up to 60 days to complete their applications and pay processing fees. Beginning on the day when all necessary information is obtained, Quebec plans to process complete applications in six months. This refers to all paperwork and forms.

Candidates will receive a Certificate de selection du Québec if they are chosen (CSQ or Quebec Selection Certificate). They can then submit an application for permanent residency to the Canadian federal government using this document.

British Columbia

On September 21, more than 352 applicants were asked to submit applications for a provincial nomination in British Columbia. Weekly provincial nomination draws are customary in BC. 341, or the majority of applicants, were selected in a targeted draw for technical positions. Candidates from the categories of International Graduates and Skilled Workers, as well as Express Entry applicants, received invitations. Entry Level and Semi-Skilled candidates were also included in the draw.

For the targeted regional draw, the required minimum SIRS score ranged from 70 for entry-level and semi-skilled candidates to 91 for skilled workers with Express Entry. Similar to the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), SIRS only applies to the PNP of British Columbia.

The following occupations were also the subject of invitation rounds from the province.

Healthcare professionals with at least 60 points and 11 early childhood educators and aides (NOC 4214) with at least 60 points.
