Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) 

All provinces in Canada have the right to select individuals who have the ability to become economically established in the province and become permanent residents of Canada. The provinces select the individuals on the basis of their education, work experience and language proficiency etc. Each province manages its inflow according to its skill needs and requirements. 

Once you received a nomination from a province or territory, your criminal record and medical suitability is checked and you will be then eligible to get permanent residence status on a fast-track basis. As a provincial nominee, you receive faster processing of your permanent resident application compared to other categories. Provincial Nominees are not assessed on the six selection factors of the federal skilled worker program but must fulfil other eligibility requirements.  

Provincial Nomination Categories: 

  1. Employer Driver/Strategic: Under this category you will be required to obtain a permanent offer of employment with an employer in the province of your choice.  
  2. Semi Skilled Workers: Some provinces such as Alberta and BC offer nomination to people under semi skilled category such a long haul truck drivers, food counter attendants, guest services attendant, hotel front desk attendants etc. Requirements and eligibility for each province and occupation may vary. 
  3. Business Investment: Under this category you may make an investment in an eligible business in a province of your choice to receive nomination and thus become eligible for fast track permanent residence. The investment requirements and eligible businesses may vary in each province.
  4. Family Sponsorships: Certain provinces such as Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Prince Edward Island have individual family sponsorship programs to reunite families. If you have a close relative who lives in any of these provinces, they may be able to sponsor your and your family members under this program if they meet the province’s eligibility criteria.

We specialize in the following British Columbia Provincial Business Immigration Programs. 

  1. Business Skills Program: This program is intended for individuals planning to set up their business in the metro Vancouver or the Abbotsford region. The minimum net worth and investment requirements apply. 
  2. Regional Business program: This Program is intended for individuals planning to set up their Business in British Columbia but do not meet the high net worth requirements of the Business Skills program. Under the Regional program the individual is allowed to establish a business anywhere in BC outside the Greater Vancouver and the Abbotsford region.

Similar nomination programs are available in other provinces. We can help you evaluate your qualifications and work experience to match you with the most relevant program and pass through the entire process of coming to Canada legally under PNP. 

If you already have a job offer from an employer within your preferred province to immigrate, we as your immigration representative can process your nomination and permanent residence application by liasoning with your prospective employer and ensuring compliance with program requirements.
