These are known as Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP). The PNP programs were established to allow each province to attract the kind of skills needed to take its economy forward and benefit both new immigrants and the provinces or territories. For a person with the right skills, a PNP program can be a faster way to come to Canada, especially if the province is a great fit for the dreams you have of living in Canada. As the world’s second-largest country, the regions within Canada are quite unique and different from each other. Each province’s PNP processing time and eligibility criteria vary.
