Provincial Immigration pathways
Canada’s provinces and territories operate individual immigration streams in collaboration with the federal government. Provincial Nominee Programs enable provinces to attract new immigrants to meet provincial needs to boost the local economy and labor market. Skilled candidates meeting individual eligibility requirements of the Provincial Nominee Programs have a better chance of receiving provincial nominations.
