Each province and territory in Canada, with the exception of Quebec, has their own¬†Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which nominates individuals interested in settling in that particular province for fast-tracked immigration. Each Canadian Provincial Nominee Program has its own criteria, guidelines, as well as province specific “streams” which are individual immigration programs targeting precise demographics of skilled workers, students, and business professionals. This allows each province and territory to attract new immigrants that have the precise skills, work experience, and knowledge required to meet the local labor market needs of their distinct economy.
