How to apply for Provincial Nomination Program?

To apply for Provincial Nomination Program, there are two routes available. The First one is through the Federal System Express Entry and the other one is applying to the province directly.

Apply To PNP through Express Entry:  Canada’s provinces are having many Express Entry aligned programs where a candidate needs to have an active Express Entry Profile to be able to apply for Provincial Nomination Program. In this case, a province will give you a nomination if your score permits.

Apply to Provincial Nomination Program directly: You can also apply to a particular PNP directly as and when their quota opens. You need to keep a regular eye as the quota generally reaches its intake limit within no time. It is therefore better to handover processing of your application to a professional and highly versatile immigration consultant like TCWW.

The direct application to the province has the following steps involved:

  • Select a Provincial Nomination Program
  • Fulfil the eligibility criteria and apply directly by visiting the province’s website
  • Get selected/nominated from that province
  • Receive a Nomination letter
  • Claim 600 additional Comprehensive Score
  • Wait for the federal draw to select and send ITA to you

Our Client Review
Immigrating to Canada as a student, I was convinced that I wanted to live my life here. I had the right grades and all other skills. But finding a job as an Indian in Canada is not always easy. Thankfully, I had Talent Connected Worldwide help me. They were the Canada immigration consultancy I had taken help from when moving to Canada as a student. After my studies, I asked them again for help. They helped me get placed with a leading bank in Canada as they are a leading IT consultancy here.

My heartfelt thanks goes out to Rachal Sidhu and her team of expert Canada immigration consultants. Since she is a Canada immigration lawyer, I could close my eyes and trust her and her team to help me get both my student visa and also my Canada PR visa. Everyone wants to immigrate overseas and if Canada is your dream country, then Talent Connected Worldwide is the consultancy to go for.
