Canada PNP (Province Nomination programs) allow Canadian provinces to nominate individuals for immigration to their province based on criteria set by the provincial government from the foreign countries. Successful applicants obtain a provincial nomination which is helpful to get the ITA (Invitation to Apply) from IRCC (Refugees and Citizenship Canada), which may then be used to apply to Immigration to Canada.
The Provincial Nominee Program, or PNP, gives nine Canadian provinces and two territories the power to select immigrants who meet local labour market needs and priorities. IRCC provides each province and territory with an annual allocation of nominations for Canadian permanent residence that is disbursed through streams tailored to their specific labour market needs.
Combined, the 11 provinces and territories that take part in Canada’s PNP have than 70 nomination streams that range in focus from international graduates of local universities to workers with skills listed as in-demand in the province, As of 2015, most PNPs contain at least one immigration stream
