This week, candidates have received invites from three provinces.This week, candidates have received invitations to apply through Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) from British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Prince Edward Island.
The provinces and territories of Canada run their own PNPs, with the exception of Quebec and Nunavut. Via these initiatives, qualified persons may be encouraged to submit an application for provincial nomination. Individuals who are nominated by the province might have an advantage when applying for permanent residence.
Almost 105,000 PR admissions each year are a result of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The annual number of PNP admissions started in 1998 and has been gradually rising ever since. Both the federal government and the provincial government view it as a useful tool for fostering economic growth outside of urban areas.
Earlier this month, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) staged two Express Entry draws, one of which took place this week and only PNP candidates were awarded ITAs. PNPs give individual provinces the ability to target job seekers who have the knowledge and training needed to fill local labor gaps and boost their economies.
Results of provincial immigration for the 11th to 17th of February in British Columbia
On February 14, British Columbia issued a call to far more than 232 persons to submit applications for provincial nomination. In a draw for IT jobs, the province invited 183 individuals. Invitations were sent to applicants in the categories of Foreign Graduates and Skilled Workers, as well as Express Entry applications, all of whom needed a minimum SIRS score of 83.
Similar to Express Entry’s Points – based System (CRS), SIRS is solely utilised for the PNP of British Colombia.
In BC, there are five separate skill-based immigration streams available for applicants with a range of knowledge and expertise. There is also a Fast Entry BC option for four of these streams. Candidates in the fifth stream are Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled, which means they lack job experience under a NOC code that qualifies for Express Entry.

- 20 healthcare professionals from the category of skilled workers, international graduates, and Express Entry, with scores of at least 60 points; other high-priority careers with ratings of at least 60
On February 16, the inaugural Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) draw for 2023 was held.
The province invited 243 participants for the Occupations-In-Demand stream and 177 for the Fast Entry stream. A minimum score of 84 was required for candidates in both streams.
As a specific response to the crisis in Ukraine, the province additionally invited one candidate whose country of residency is Ukraine. Hence, 468 invitations have now been sent.
Isle of Prince Edward:On February 16, Prince Edward Island sent out invitations to 222 applicants through the PEI PNP’s Work and Express Entry streams. Also, six candidates who had at least 70 points were invited through the Business Work Permit Entrepreneur program.

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) for Express Entry is used to rate EOI profiles, and similar to the CRS, the highest-scoring applicants are asked to apply through monthly lotteries.
