Candidates were invited by 3 provinces from October 6 to October 12, namely, British Columbia, Manitoba, and Alberta.
Candidates who support the local labour force by filling urgent gaps in in-demand sectors and can integrate into the economy easily are invited to apply under Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). Candidates from the Express Entry pool of applications and those who apply directly to the provincial government are selected by the provinces.
The application of a candidate is definitely made stronger by getting invited by a province. Even though it is different than getting permanent resident status. Nominated candidates must still send a separate application to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
