Candidates were invited by 3 provinces in the latest draw results from July 14 to 18, namely, Manitoba, British Columbia, and New Brunswick.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is most likely to provide an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency to a candidate who has already been nominated by a province.
Immigration in Canada is a responsibility that is shared by both the federal and provincial governments. You are considered a good fit for the provincial labour force if you are nominated.
Economic immigration candidates with a high probability of integrating into the provincial economy are targeted by the Provincial Nominee Program. Family connection, profession, or the demonstration of strong intent to reside in the province may be some factors that matter a lot to prove that a candidate can economically establish himself/herself within the province.
Nova Scotia was also prompted to update its selection criteria because of the likelihood of remaining within the province for the Experience Stream of the Nova Scotia Immigration Program.
Candidates who have completed their graduation from any other Canadian province except Nova Scotia, will still be eligible to apply for a provincial nomination in Nova Scotia through other streams as the criteria to only select international graduates who have completed their studies within Nova Scotia was modified by the province effective from June 9.
