JOIN THE CANADA EXPRESS ENTRY POOL IMMEDIATELY
Are you planning to relocate to Canada soon and get a Permanent Residency (PR)? Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is an approachable way to settle in this North American Country. The PNP allows Canadian provinces and territories to recommend people for PR. Although the PNP program is distinct from the Express Entry program, it grants applicants who hold a select PNP 600 more Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points when they enlist in the Express Entry pool. Some PNP programs send Letters of Interest (LoIs) to applicants having CRS scores below 400 too. Best Migration Consultant can step in to let you avail this major opportunity to migrate to the world’s second-largest country by area with our committed support for visas and immigration.
Canada created PNP to appeal to skilled talent from across the world to its provinces that face talent shortages. Numerous applicants have successfully migrated and settled in Canada for good via the PNP program. Some of the top provinces of Canada that candidates chose to apply to as per this program are Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Manitoba, and Alberta.
Professionals who have experience in finance, technology, marketing, healthcare, or education and who want to apply under the PNP program can explore their options now.
You need to apply under the PNP program to relocate to Canada by living in one of its provinces, contributing to its development, and becoming a PR of Canada.
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Options
There are two ways of filing for an application with the PNP program:
1. Paper-based process
2. Through Express Entry
The first step involves applying to the province/territory for nomination without opting for the Express Entry stream. Suppose you fulfil the eligibility criteria and qualify through the different in-demand Occupation Lists of certain provinces. In that case, you will obtain a nomination from the province where your occupation is listed, allowing you to apply for a PR visa in Canada.
At this stage, you will have to submit a paper application to obtain your PR visa. The time to process for PNPs is generally longer than for the Express Entry system.
Express Entry System:
There are two ways to apply for this:
You can apply for a nomination by getting in touch with the province/territory and applying under the Express Entry stream.
If the province or territory wishes to nominate you, you can then initiate the process of creating an Express Entry profile. If you already have a profile, update it.
Another way is to create an Express Entry profile and mention the provinces/territories you would like to settle in. If you get a ‘notification of interest’ from the province, you can get in touch with them to apply to them via the Express Entry system.
In any case, you need to meet the eligibility criteria for your application to be successful.

Features of the Provincial Nominee Program:
Canada offers around 80 PNPs, all of which have their individual eligibility requirements. The PNP
program allows provinces/territories to meet their distinct immigration requirements by enabling them to fill job vacancies that are sought-after and meet their workforce shortages.
Most PNPs will give preference to applicants who have connections in the provinces. They could have either worked there or studied there earlier. Even if they have a job offer from an employer in that province, they are preferred.
With a provincial nomination, you can get a PR visa in two ways. Firstly, it adds 600 CRS points to
your Express Entry application, making you eligible for applying for a PR visa directly to Immigration,
Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Note. PNP nomination=600 CRS points
