Canadian Provincial Nominee ProgramsCanadian Provincial Nominee Programs are for foreign nationals who have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of a specific province or territory and want to make that province their permanent home. Each province and territory has its own immigration streams to accommodate students, business people, skilled workers, and semi-skilled workers. Some provincial programs also have an Express Entry component.

Express Entry and Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs

In order to proceed forward with each province’s specific immigrant admissions plans, you must first receive a positive assessment from the province. Only then can you advance to the final stages of immigration through the federal government. If the province’s assessment of your suitability is positive as to work experience, education/training, language skills, adaptability, and adequate funds to settle you and your family, the federal government’s opinion will be “almost” in most cases. Factors that will result in a negative assessment include a medical exam indicating severe health issues or having a criminal record.
