5 Canadian provinces issued invitations from December 7 to 14, namely, Manitoba, Quebec, Alberta, Ontario, and British Columbia.
Through the Provincial Nominee Program, economic immigration candidates were nominated by provinces. If a candidate has a strong application, he receives a PNP nomination after applying to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent residence.
Within the PNP, there are several pathways for eligible candidates, depending on their attributes. For example, there are pathways in most provinces for candidates who already have a job offer in Canada or international student graduates.
