Why add NYIT to your list?
Most of the time a person plans or aspires to acquire a PR but the concept sounds a bit complicated or lengthy from afar. So to break it down, we’ll see some technical definitions, concept, process, and lastly provinces.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada has signed up with provinces and territories in Canada (except Quebec – which has a separate selection program), allowing them to nominate immigrants through a system titled Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Those who wish to apply under Provincial Nominee Programs must have the skills, education, and work experience to contribute to the economy of that province or territory and must want to live there. Provincial Nomination is also an important fast-track option available for Canadian
Permanent Residency. The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) allow Canadian provinces and territories to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and who are interested in settling in a particular province.
Each Canadian province and territory (except Nunavut and Quebec) has its own unique Provincial Nominee Program. Each PNP has at least one immigration stream that is aligned with the federal Express Entry immigration selection system.
Each province and territory has its own “streams” (immigration programs that target certain groups) and requirements. For example, in a program stream, provinces and territories may target:
● business people
● skilled workers
● semi-skilled worker
There are mainly two types of process:
● Paper-based process
● Express Entry process
In the paper-based process:
● You apply to the province or territory for nomination under a non-Express Entry stream.
● You need to meet the eligibility requirements of the province that nominates you.
● Once you have been nominated, you submit a paper application for permanent residence
to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.
● You have to pass a medical exam and get a police check (certificate). Everyone must
have these checks, no matter where you plan to live in Canada.
● Application processing times are longer than through Express Entry.
How to apply through the paper-based process
Express Entry process
In the online Express Entry process, there are 2 ways to apply:
● You contact the province or territory and apply for a nomination under an Express Entry stream.
● If the province or territory agrees to nominate you, you create an Express Entry profile (or update your profile if you already have one) and show you have been nominated.
● You create an Express Entry profile and show the provinces and territories you’re interested in.
● If a province or territory sends you a “notification of interest” to your account, you contact them directly.
● You apply to their Express Entry stream:
○ If you’re nominated, the province will offer it to you through your account, and you accept it electronically.
In both cases:
● You must meet the eligibility requirements of the province or territory. And,
● You must submit an Express Entry profile and show that you meet the minimum criteria for Express Entry, including being eligible for one of the immigration programs it covers.
● If you are invited to apply, you submit an electronic application to IRCC.
To be nominated by a province or territory, you must follow the instructions on their website and contact them directly. And for more information on the process and formalities visit the website of Canada officials.
