Apply for Canada Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) 2021
Canada is a leading immigration destination for skilled professionals and businessmen from all over the world. The land of unlimited resources gives skilled professionals an unparalleled opportunity to become part of one of the world’s most advanced economies, with a wide array of career opportunities. Canadian Permanent Residents enjoy a number of privileges that are almost similar to those enjoyed by full citizens. These include free healthcare, free education, and protection under the law, sponsorship opportunities, etc. Also, PR card holders can become full citizens just after 3 years of stay and even have the option of migrating to the United States. These are some of the many reasons why numerous people choose to immigrate to Canada each year.
While Canadian provinces are bound to ambiguously follow the pattern of the Express Entry program, they do have the freedom to set their own criteria when it comes to assessing the merit of a potential immigrant. Please be noted that each province determines its requirements separately and these can be changed at any time without prior notice.
For a better understanding of each PNP General Criteria, the following list is a general guide to the minimum requirements for eligibility for immigration to Canadian provinces via the Provincial Nominee Programs.
