Latest updates for Ontario and BC PNP programs 2022 in Canada This week Ontario and BC PNP programs have issued ITAs (Invitations To Apply) to the applicants in Canada. Most provinces in Canada have their own PNP nominations and eligible candidates are invited through these PNP (Provincial Nominations Programs) programs in Canada.
The PNP (Provincial Nominations Programs) was launched in 1998 since then it has significantly increased its prominence and accounts for more than 80,000 PR (Personal Residence) admissions every year.
Moreover, the provincial and federal government considers PNP nominations to be beneficial for the economic development of Canada and this is why PNP admissions are increasing rapidly.
However, getting a provincial nomination doesn’t mean you have got a permanent residence in Canada but it can be the start of receiving a permanent residence from IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada).
