Draws Held by Manitoba & Prince Edward Island for Provincial Nomination
Both Manitoba and Prince Edwards have issued new invitations for immigrants through their provincial programs. Between November 11 and 18, both of these provinces successfully issued over 100 invitations to apply (ITAs).
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is a Canadian immigration program that allows provinces and territories to nominate individuals for immigration to Canada. Each province and territory has its own PNP, which is tailored to the specific needs of that province or territory.
The PNP began in 1998 as a way to address the specific needs of each province and territory. Since then, the number of PNP admissions has steadily increased. On average, the PNP accounted for 105,000 Permanent Resident (PR) admissions each year which shows its importance in Canadian immigration policies.
PNP gives provinces and territories the flexibility to design their own programs in order to meet their specific needs. This allows them to attract and retain immigrants who will best contribute to their economy and society.
The PNP has been successful in attracting highly skilled immigrants who are able to fill labor shortages in specific sectors. It provides a pathway to Canadian permanent residency for applicants who may not qualify under other immigration programs.
