Summary of Canadian PNP Immigration Results for November 2021

Summary of Canadian PNP Immigration Results for November 2021

During the month of November, the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) of Canada issued roughly 3,000 invitations to apply for provincial nomination.

With the exception of Nunavut and Quebec, which have their own immigration schemes, nearly every Canadian province and territory has its own Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

The ability for provincial governments to select immigration candidates who satisfy their local labour market needs and regulate the regional settling of the immigrant population within their authority is made possible by having their own immigration programmes. 

Each province sets its own standards for determining which foreign employees are eligible for permanent residence in Canada under its own PNP. The PNP is a complement to federal immigration policies that allow Canadian provinces to play a vital role in immigrant selection.

Since its inception in 1998, the PNP has grown to become Canada's second most popular pathway to permanent residency. Between now and 2023, PNPs are likely to result in the admission of more than 80,000 immigrants as permanent residents.

Highlights of the PNP-Focused Express Entry in November 2021

At least one stream in each province's PNP is linked to the federal Express Entry system, which is Canada's principal economic immigration route.

Since the beginning of the year, Immigration, College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants (CICC) have held PNP–specific Express Entry lotteries every two weeks on average.

In November, the CICC held two Express Entry draws for PNP candidates, giving 775 ITAs on November 10, and another 613 on November 24.

Since mid-September, CICC has only held draws for the PNP category. So far this year, there have been 23 PNP-specific lotteries, with 13,000 hopefuls receiving invitations.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) did not issue any invites through its PNP streams in November. This indicates that the province's nomination allocation quota for 2021 may have been achieved.

The following is a summary of November drawings by province, ordered from most to least invitations.

1. British Columbia

British Columbia staged six draws in the last month, inviting 861 people to apply for a provincial nomination through the Express Entry British Columbia and Skills Immigration streams, almost matching the number of invitations provided every month since the programme began.

2. Manitoba

This month, the province of Manitoba held two draws in each of the three streams: Skilled Workers in Manitoba, International Education Stream, and Skilled Workers Overseas.

The draws took place on November 1 and 18, and a total of 849 Letters of Advice to Apply were issued, with 143 of them going to candidates who declared a valid Express Entry profile.

3. Saskatchewan

The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) issued the largest invitation round of the year in November, with 633 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination issued through the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories of the International Skilled Worker Category. After a one-month hiatus, invitations were distributed in both subcategories for the first time in this round.

In December 2021, the SINP will begin a new pilot initiative to assist firms in recruiting overseas talent for certain in-demand occupations.

Healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture, agricultural technology, construction, hospitality, and retail are among the industries with the highest labour demand.

Candidates for the new Hard-To-Fill Skills Pilot project must have a permanent, full-time employment offer, be fluent in an official Canadian language, and have the required education and work experience.

4. Alberta

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINPExpress)'s Entry Stream has hosted one invitation round so far in November. On November 9, the AINP held a draw and invited 200 candidates with CRS scores of at least 343.

5. Prince Edward Island 

On November 18, Prince Edward Island held a huge pre-scheduled draw and granted a total of 188 invitations to immigration applicants. Express Entry and Labor Impact applicants received the majority of the invites (172).

The remaining 16 invites were given to Business Impact candidates who scored at least 67 points. So far this year, PEI has staged 11 drawings, bringing the total number of invites given to 1,729.

6. Nova Scotia 

Food & beverage servers (NOC 6513), food counter attendants (NOC 6711), and light-duty cleaners (NOC 6513) are three new qualified jobs added to the Occupations In-Demand stream on November 18. (NOC 6731).

Newfoundland and Labrador is a province in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Lab.

The results of the first three draws held under the Priority Skills Newfoundland and Labrador stream were revealed in November by Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Nominee Program (NLPNP) has invited 663 people to submit for a provincial nomination so far this year.

What exactly are PNPs?

PNPs allow provinces and territories in Canada to nominate people for permanent immigration.

PNPs are divided into two categories: base and enhanced.

Because base nomination streams are administered by the provinces, they operate independently of the Express Entry system. Nominations in this category are subject to the PNP stream's processing rules.

In order to go from a successful base nomination to permanent residency, candidates will generally have to go through a two-step process.

First, candidates determine that they meet the criteria for a PNP stream, apply, and if successful, receive a nomination certificate. Once they have this certificate, they will be can apply for permanent resident status with the federal government.

On the other hand, enhanced nomination streams are linked to the Express Entry system. They enable provincial immigration officials to explore the Express Entry candidate pool for those who meet specified requirements. These individuals are then invited to apply for a provincial nomination by the provinces.

The Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class all use the Express Entry system to manage the pool of candidates for Canada's three main federal-level economic immigration programmes.

Candidates that receive a provincial nomination through an expanded provincial stream receive an extra 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. In a subsequent Express Entry draw, they will very certainly receive an invitation to apply (ITA) for permanent residence.
