Canadian Provincial Nominee Programs have played a significant role in the Canada Immigration process for 2018. Also, it is aimed that for the upcoming months it will perform a key factor for increasing Canada population and skilled labor.
The Provincial Nominee Programs nominate candidates based on the candidate’s skills so that the candidates will be able to fit the required eligibility of any province. However, few parts of the programs are even managed by the Express Entry System.
The candidates obtaining a nomination through the Provincial Nominee Programs receive an additional 600 points towards their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score. This enhances the candidate’s profile and helps in obtaining an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian Permanent Residency through Express Entry Draws.
Anyhow, there are even a few other PNP streams through which a candidate can gain a provincial nomination. Last year, the Provincial Nominee Programs provided excellent support for the Canada economy and it is aimed that, this year it will be more successful.
In 2018, the Canadian provinces and territories could provide 34,700 nominations. The IRCC terms this change as a terrific increase as, after the introduction of the Express Entry System in 1996, the program could succeed with only 233 nominations. Also, for this year, the IRCC aims an increase of nearly 61,000 New Permanent Residency nominations and expects to reach 71,300 in 2021, i.e., according to its Multi-Million Plan.
While processing the Provincial Nominations, the provinces felt few changes to be needed for an easy immigration process. So, it is aimed that, there may be changes in this New Year within the provinces.
