Canadian provinces regularly nominate candidates under their Provincial Nominee Programs to give them the opportunity to live permanently in Canada.
Last week, Manitoba and BC released the results of the new Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws, and Ontario announced details of the May draws.
Most Canadian provinces and territories (with the exception of Quebec and Nunavut) operate their own PNP programs. Under these programs, interested candidates may be invited to apply for a provincial nomination. Although provincial nomination isn’t always itself similar to permanent residence, it is able to drastically grow the possibilities of acquiring permanent resident status.
For instance, PNP applicants with Express Entry profiles who acquire a nomination get six hundred factors introduced to their score. They additionally emerge as eligible to be invited to use for a PNP-specific round of invites. In the last Express Entry draw on May 27, Canada invited 589 PNP applicants who had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of at least 741 points.
Here’s a look back at recent PNP invitation rounds held across Canada.
The Province of British Columbia typically holds a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) invitation round on a weekly basis.
The most current rounds of invites beneath the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) had been hung on May 31. More than 167 candidates received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination in these draws.
A total of 147 of these candidates were invited through a general drawing. These candidates must meet the eligibility requirements for one of the Express Entry BC or Skills Immigration categories administered through the Skills and Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
Candidates who received an invitation in this draw were in the Skilled Worker, International Graduate, Entry Level, and Semi-Skilled subcategories and had to achieve a minimum score between 76 and 123, depending on the category.
The province is also currently conducting rounds of invitations for applicants in specific occupations to meet the increased demand for workers in certain sectors of the economy. This week, the province invited the following applicants:
– 15 Educators (NOC 4214) with a minimum score of 60;
– 5 health care workers with a minimum score of 60;
– Fewer than five health care assistants (NOC 3413) with a minimum score of 60; and
– Fewer than five animal health technologists and veterinarians (NOC 3114 and NOC 3213) with a score of at least 60.
The Manitoba PNP invited 146 applicants to use on June 2. Invitations were distributed to two immigration streams:
– Skilled Workers Overseas — ninety-two invites with a minimal score of 714 and.
– International Education Stream – 54 invitations that do not require a minimum score.
Of all invited applicants, 34 had a profile in the Express Entry system.
Those interested in a nomination from Manitoba must submit an Express of Interest (EOI) to the MPNP. Manitoba scores applicants’ profiles based on 1,000 points for their human capital factors and connections to the province. The MPNP then sends invitations to eligible candidates to apply for nomination by the province under the Skilled Workers in Manitoba and Skilled Workers Overseas programs.
Due to the provincial election, the Province of Ontario has temporarily suspended the release of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) draw results.
CIC News contacted the OINP for details on the May draws. According to the province, two rounds of invitations were held last month.
On May 4, 2022, the province sent out 57 invitations to apply to potential candidates from the Expression of Interest System pool who might qualify for the employer’s job offer: In-Demand Skills move with a score of 27 and above.
As of May 26, 2022, the province has sent out 535 Expressions of Interest to potential candidates who could qualify for Ontario’s Express Entry Skilled Trades Stream if they score between 295 and 461 in the comprehensive ranking system.
