Canada Immigration: Provincial nominees – Immediate Immigration

in Applicant


The Canadian High Commission and their associate offices throughout the world have categorized their immigration programs based on the professional skills, technical expertise, business entrepreneurs, investors and self employed persons. Each of these programs has their distinct processes which are required to be followed rigorously.

One of the most prominent immigration programs is the Provincial Nominee Program which enables people to migrate to Canada. The people who plan to migrate to Canada under this program are required to possess the requisite skills, educational qualifications and the work experience.

All these requirements enable the immigrant to start making their contribution to the economy of the province in Canada without any delay. These applicants are nominated by a large number of states in Canada. One of the advantages of selecting people under this category to migrate is that such persons are able to settle themselves as permanent citizens with tremendous success.

Almost all the provinces in Canada have in place an Agreement with the Canadian Government which permits them to nominate or elect immigrants who indicate a desire to settle down in their province immediately on arrival. There is a list of provinces and territories in Canada, who are active participants in the Provincial Nominee Program,

•  Alberta
•  Manitoba
•  Newfoundland and Labrador
•  Ontario
•  Saskatchewan
•  British Columbia
•  New Brunswick
•  Nova Scotia
•  Prince Edward Island
•  Yukon
•  Northwest Territories

One of the mandatory conditions that govern this program is that the applicant should be nominated by a Canadian territory or a province. For this purpose, the applicant must first apply to the province where he desires to settle down and fulfill the provincial nomination process. The application of the applicant would be considered taking into account its requirements of immigration and the authenticity of the applicant to settle down in the province. It is pertinent to note that each of the above provinces have their own individual criteria, therefore it is imperative that the applicant visits the websites regularly to apprise themselves of their terms and conditions.

Immediately after the nomination by the province is through, the applicant must file in a separate application with the CIC or the Citizen and Immigration Canada applying for permanent residency. The application form submitted by the applicant will then be scrutinized by an official of the CIC dependent on the rules and regulations framed by the Canadian Immigration Authorities.

As in the case of Quebec skilled workers, the applicant would be required to undergo routine medical exams as well as security and criminal checks which are mandatory for any applicant in the immigration process. However, these kind of provincial nominees are not evaluated on the basis of the six selection factors authorized by the Federal Skilled Workers Program. Since the information on requirements by each province is subject to change, without any formal notice, it is always preferable to visit the immigration sites on a regular basis before applying for the visa under this category. A fair amount of familiarity with the application processes is always better.
