Amendments in PNP of Canada


Many of the provinces and territories of Canada can nominate immigrants through Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The immigrant must want to live there with a skill, work experience or education to contribute to the economy of the territory or that province.

People from around the globe apply for immigration to Canada though this PNP, which follows a particular pattern for the candidates to be nominated as an immigrant for the province.

To apply for the PNP, you must apply first to the province to be nominated, then get nominated by the province with necessary points and then apply to Citizenship and immigration Canada – CIC to become a permanent resident.

A new instruction came into force on November 19, 2016. If the offer is in an occupation contained in a Major Group 00 of the National Occupational Classification, a qualifying job offer is worth 200 points. For any other qualifying job offer of an arranged employment, it is worth 50 points. But, a candidate with provincial nomination supported by Labor Market Impact Assessment will be given 600 points of which makes the PNP program even more preferable to immigrate to Canada.

Plus, the latest release by IRCC stated that Canada will welcome around 51,000 new immigrants through PNP program in the year 2017, so with more categories opening up, it’s more important for applicants to stay informed with the immigration programs.
