You must be familiar with the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) for immigration to Canada. PNPs are the immigration programs organised by Canada`s provinces, so that the candidates could be nominated for immigration to Canada. There are approximately 80 different PNPs, with different immigration requirements. PNPs are made to cover the bridge between the labour force and common people, so that some experienced and skilled immigrants could be brought in, with high demand occupations.
Majority of the PNPs require the candidate to have connection with the province through various means like previous work experience, job offer from an employer in the province or previous study in the province. But there are also some PNPs that are perfect for those living outside of Canada, who don`t have connection to Canada`s provinces.
