Eligibility Criteria - Provincial Nominee Program

Most provinces in Canada have an agreement with the Federal Government that allows them to nominate individuals who want to settle in that province as new immigrants. Something that most provinces have in common is the stream for attracting businesspersons who demonstrate ability and intention to establish a business in the province, and settle and live there as well. Therefore, most provinces have an entrepreneur program for such businesspersons.

Each province and territory has its own streams and criteria for their Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). These can change without notice. More information can be found on the website of the province or territory that interests an applicant (see below).

Eligibility Criteria

The eligibility criteria for the PNP is different based on whether an applicant applies through the paper-based (non-Express Entry streams) or Express Entry (Express Entry streams) process.

If an applicant is applying through the paper-based process

  • They must meet the minimum requirements of one of the province or territory’s non-Express Entry streams.
  • They must be nominated under that stream.

If an applicant is applying through Express Entry

  • They must meet the minimum requirements of a province or territory’s Express Entry PNP stream.
  • They must be nominated under that stream.
  • They must create an Express Entry profile and show that they meet the minimum criteria for Express Entry, including the requirements of one of the immigration programs it covers.
