5 provinces invited candidates from November 16 to December 1, namely Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Manitoba, and PEI.
All provinces and territories have Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP), except Nunavut and Quebec and these programs permit provincial governments to nominate the candidates who, according to them, are best suited to integrate into provincial economy. The candidate’s application for permanent residency is made much stronger by a provincial nomination.
Responsibility for immigration is shared by IRCC with provincial governments. To discuss shared priorities, Immigration Minister Marc Miller met with his provincial counterparts. These meetings are held two times a year and help inform IRCC on how to use immigration as an effective tool to promote the economic well-being of the Canadian provinces.
