Four provinces issue invitations in latest provincial immigration results

In the latest Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) results, Ontario, British Columbia (B.C.), and Manitoba have extended invitations through their respective programs. Additionally, Quebec has also issued invitations through its provincial immigration program.

PNP Programs Across Canada

Across Canada, 11 out of the country's 13 provincial and territorial governments utilize their PNPs to seek immigration candidates who align best with their region's labor force and demographic needs.

Invitation Process for Immigration Candidates

Upon receiving an Expression of Interest (EOI) from a province or territory, immigration candidates can proceed in two ways:

  1. Base PNP Stream: Candidates can use the EOI to directly apply for permanent residence through the PNP program.

  2. Enhanced PNP Stream: Candidates can use the Notification of Interest to apply for a provincial nomination certificate while in the Express Entry pool.

Enhanced PNP Stream Benefits

Candidates who receive a provincial nomination certificate through the Enhanced PNP Stream enhance their candidacy for economic immigration through Express Entry by automatically gaining an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points.

Provincial Immigration Results from February 3 to February 9.

British Columbia (B.C.)

This week, British Columbia conducted several targeted draws for Skilled Workers and International Graduates through the BC PNP. The February 6 draw issued invitations to candidates in various occupations, including childcare, construction, healthcare, and veterinary care.


On February 6, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) issued Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to candidates eligible for Ontario’s Express Entry Human Capital Priorities stream, focusing on healthcare occupations.


Quebec released the results of a January 24 draw, inviting candidates based on different eligibility criteria. The province invited 1,007 people to apply for permanent selection.


On February 8, Manitoba posted results from recent draws, inviting a total of 282 candidates under various streams of the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP).

These provincial immigration results underscore the ongoing efforts of provinces to address their specific labor force and demographic needs through their respective immigration programs.
