Results of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw have been made public by four Canadian provinces: Saskatchewan, Ontario, British Columbia, and Manitoba.
The majority of provinces and territories of Canada control their own PNPs but Nunavut and Quebec always have been the expectation. Those individuals who are interested in settling in the province have to demonstrate an interest in applying for a provincial nomination. Even while it is not the same as permanent resident status in and of itself, the provincial nomination can significantly increase the likelihood of obtaining it. The CRS score of PNP applicants with Express Entry profiles who are nominated, for instance, will rise by 600 points. Those candidates who want to be invited have to satisfy the prerequisites which are only open to members of PNP.
Due to its popularity, the PNP now admits more than 80,000 immigrants annually compared to its initial cap of 400. The number of PNP admissions has increased because the federal and provincial governments of Canada see the PNP as a helpful tool for improving the country’s economic development.
Express Entry holds a draw once every two weeks. IRCC is currently holding all-program Express Entry draws once again following an extended absence. The inaugural Express Entry draw, which was held on July 6, 2020, after an 18-month hiatus, results in invites for 1500 Express Entry applicants in total. A total of 1750 candidates were invited in the latest draw of Express Entry which was conducted on 20 July.
