Every year several of the temporary visa holders in Canada convert their status to a permanent one and enjoy the benefits of living in Canada.

The Provincial Nominee Program allows a Canadian province or territory to nominate an individual with the appropriate education, skills, and/or work experience to be a Permanent Residence in Canada. However, these visas are limited and only a few of the thousands who apply get selected for it.

After receiving a certificate of nomination, the applicant makes a separate application to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to apply for permanent residence. The applicant needs to meet both the provincial criteria, as well as the federal immigration requirements.

Only with the guidance of a professional immigration consultant can you achieve this dream Failure to meet the provincially set criteria will likely lead to a rejection of the application.

Which Provincial Nominee Program is Easiest?

Canada is a vast country, made up of several provinces and territories. Each of these provinces and territories has its own characteristics, work opportunities, and laws, and the Provincial Nominee Programs vary from province to province.

Canadian immigration laws are especially complex, and it is imperative that you have an experienced immigration professional to guide you. There may be situations where you might require in-depth knowledge of the rules, for example, if you have employers from two different provinces and both are willing to nominate you, it’s possible that you are not admissible to one of those provinces. Only an experienced immigration consultant can guide you through this.

Oftentimes, provincial laws change. This could set back your application. Hence you need the guidance of experienced immigration professional. They understand the necessary steps required to complete an application and ensure that the application and supporting documents are always dealt with properly, for the slightest error can lead to an application’s rejection.
