Step by step guide for PNP


I need to know how we can apply for Canada PR through PNP. I understand that EE is the shortest and preferred way but I am looking for options in case my CRS score is falling short of minimum threshold for EE.

Also let me know in case there are some common steps between EE and PNP.

Really need this help.


Anyone out there who is reading this :blush:


I read it and even bookmarked the post so that I could follow it. Unfortunately, I have no idea about how to proceed with PNP. I had looked at some information on the official Canadian immigration website but it just looked very confusing to me.

lets see if someone responses this, I guess I wont be able to get thru EE as our scores are little short of min requirement.

@anon25417004 Do you have any pointers for this.

Canada has the following provinces Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan. Northwest Territories and Yukon. Each of these has its own PNP process if they except you then you get a “Provincial Nomination Certificate”. You can then add this certificate to your EE application and get extra points which should qualify you.

The only province that does not have PNP and has its own different immigration process is Qubec (something to do with local english / french politics) I’ve included a link to the Qubec process below. Keep in mind you are required to reside in the province that nominated you for some years (I think its 2). If you break that not sure what they can do as PR’s have the rights to live and work across Canada. I think its a grey area and they could say you lied on application which could be bad for you.

Also the only provinces I can see myself living in is Ontario (Toronto), BC (Vancouver)
and Qubec (Montreal)

Example: Alberta PNP process

Qubec Process

I’m currently going through OINP, which is Ontario’s PNP.
Will update this when I get that done.

In general, if you are living/working/studying in one of the provinces or if you have a job offer from one of them it’s easier to get the nomination. I had looked at PNP before I went through EE and it seemed at the time that whichever province I checked wanted to know if I have studied or worked in them. So I gave up on PNP and got EE.

@acheema I just wanted to check if you got nomination from ON PNP. How easy or hard to get nomination?

I got it.
The hardness comes from them targeting people with job offers or french skills.
I got in on a rare general draw. Seems like a once per year thing.

Hi Friends,

I applied the EOI of other province & Express entry profile only (Not Application). So should i say YES for the below question?

Have you or your spouse ever applied to any other Provincial Nominee Program (other than the MPNP) or a federal immigration program with an intended destination outside of Manitoba?

I am confused because is it related to EOI as well or only Application submission who received the ITA. Pls confirm
