Provincial Business Programs

Canadian Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) for Business

PNPs are agreements between individual provinces and the federal Canadian government that expedite the permanent resident process for certain candidates. Those candidates fall into the general streams of skilled workers to fill labour shortages, business people (entrepreneurs and investors) to create jobs, close family members and students. PNPs are attractive because they offer shorter processing times than the federal and Quebec Immigration programs. Also, the provinces may be able to provide a letter of support to assist applicants in obtaining a Work Permit prior to getting permanent residence.

Please select your desired province from the menu for more information about specific program requirements.
