Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program
The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) is an immigration program through which a broad range of workers, graduates, and entrepreneurs can settle in Alberta permanently. The AINP is one of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).
Successful applicants to the AINP receive a provincial nomination certificate. With this nomination, the applicant, as well as his or her accompanying family members, if applicable, may apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for Canadian permanent residence.
British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC-PNP)
The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC-PNP) is an immigration program through which a broad range of workers, graduates, and entrepreneurs can settle in British Columbia permanently.
The BC-PNP is one of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). It is one of the most varied of all the PNPs, with two broad streams for workers and graduates — Express Entry BC and Skills Immigration — plus an additional stream for entrepreneurs.
These streams are further divided into various categories. Some BC-PNP categories are aligned with Canada’s federal Express Entry immigration selection system. Successful applicants under one of these categories obtain 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points and an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence at a subsequent draw from the pool.
Since first being launched in 1998, more than 130,000 immigrants to Canada arrived through the MPNP. Manitoba is committed to increasing that number in the years ahead.
The MPNP has been undergoing a slow transition over the past several years, called the MPNP Renewal, although the transition has experienced significant delays and still has yet to be complete.
Many of the new pathways to provincial nomination will be structured within the currently existing International Skilled Worker stream, which will continue to operate in its current guise until more changes come into effect. The current MPNP criteria for this stream, which is divided into the Skilled Workers Overseas and Skilled Workers in Manitoba categories, remains in effect for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) and the receipt of applications by the province.
Ontario’s Human Capital Priorities Stream
Ontario’s Express Entry-aligned Human Capital Priorities Stream is a unique, dynamic way of bringing people to Canada’s most populated province.
Since being introduced in 2015, the Human Capital Priorities Stream has been an undeniable success. In many ways, it has become the centrepiece of the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP), through which Ontario welcomes newcomers from around the world.
This stream requires candidates to have an active Express Entry profile in order to be considered. Ontario periodically invites candidates from the Express Entry pool to submit an application for provincial nomination. Although the province announces the CRS score range for each round of invitations and sometimes restricts invitations to candidates with experience in certain occupations, the exact selection criteria for each draw is not released to the public.
Successful applicants to the Ontario Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream receive 600 additional CRS points, followed by an invitation to apply (ITA) for permanent residence.
A job offer is not required in order to qualify under this stream, though candidates with a job offer have been prioritized for invitation in the past.
Saskatchewan Express Entry (International Skilled Worker)
Candidates in Canada’s Express Entry pool who wish to live and work in Saskatchewan may find a route to provincial nomination and Canadian permanent residence through the Saskatchewan Express Entry sub-category of the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) International Skilled Worker category.
Saskatchewan Express Entry targets skilled workers who have recent work experience in a high-skilled occupations that is not on the SINP Excluded Occupations List below. A job offer is not required. Successful applicants to this sub-category receive 600 points under the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). This effectively guarantees an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent resident status in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
