Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan hold draws for Provincial immigration

Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan hold draws for Provincial immigration

Provincial immigration draws are held in Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia. The most recent PNP draw includes invitations to four provinces. Candidates for provincial immigration programs have received invitations to apply from Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan, 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.

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).

Since its inception in 1998, the PNP has admitted more than 80,000 PR applicants annually. The federal and provincial governments of Canada have increased the number of PNP admissions because they see it as a useful tool for promoting the economic growth of the nation outside of the provinces and urban areas with substantial immigrant populations. Results for provincial immigration from September 24-29


Quebec issued a call for applications for 1,009 skilled professionals on September 15. Candidates with work experience in in-demand professions and a legitimate employment offer outside the area of the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal were targeted for the draw. Candidates are required to have Arrima Expression of Interest profiles with a minimum of 563-point ratings.

This is the second draw in September and the eleventh draw that Quebec has held in 2022. Quebec generally only holds draws once a month, so this is uncommon. 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). Those who get an invitation from Quebec to apply for permanent selection have up to 60 days to complete their applications and payment 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.


Over the last week, the Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (OINP) held two drawings. On September 23, the French-Speaking Skilled Workers stream received the first draw. The required score was 326, and the province accepted 363 applicants.

Candidates for the program must be fluent in French and have a high level of English proficiency. The Human Capital Priorities stream had the second draw. On September 28, the province sent out 1,179 invites via OINP as part of a targeted draw for tech-related positions. All of the candidates had a work history in specialized tech-related fields.

British Columbia

On September 28, British Columbia issued invitations for more than 258 people to submit applications for provincial nomination. In a targeted draw for tech jobs, the majority of applicants, 215, received invitations.

Candidates from the categories of International Graduates and Skilled Workers, as well as Express Entry applicants, received invitations. Candidates with minimum SIRS scores of 100 were invited to the target tech drawing. 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.

- with a minimum score of 60, 28 early childhood educators and helpers (NOC 4214);

- 15 healthcare professionals with scores of at least 60 points from the EEBC option's skilled worker, international graduate, entry-level, and semi-skilled categories.

- entry-level and semi-skilled healthcare aides who have received a minimum score of 60;

- Other high-priority careers need at least a 60

British Columbia recently stated that would be delaying draws under the BC PNP between October 12 and November 16 due to the shift from NOC 2016 to NOC 2021, a new technique of assessing a candidate’s skill level in economic immigration programs.


A total of 1,146 applicants have been invited by Saskatchewan under the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), including 639 applicants under the Express Entry stream and 507 applicants under the Occupations-In-Demand stream. 

This draw is similar to others that have taken place this summer, the most recent of which included over 1,000 applicants. This drawing is the first since September 7. Last week's draw was absent, making it the first week since July 6 without a SINP draw.
