2022 Canada PNP Roundup | 47,480+ Invitations

Published on : January 3, 2023

 

Canadian PNP provides a route to Canadian permanent residence that begins with a nomination and ends in a permanent visa. 

As per the 2022 Annual Report to Parliament on Immigration, “there were 54,020 people admitted through the Provincial Nominee Program in 2021, a 40% increase from 2020 admissions. This represents over 21% of permanent resident admissions in the economic category and directly supports provinces and territories with meeting their labour market needs in various critical sectors, including healthcare, hospitality, food services and transportation.”

Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is for those individuals who - 

  1. Have the education, skills, and work experience to make a contribution to the economy of a specific Canadian province or territory, 
  2. Want to live in the nominating province/territory, and 
  3. Want to settle in Canada as a permanent resident. 

Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories. Of these, 9 provinces and 2 territories are a part of Canadian PNP. As Quebec immigration runs separately, Quebec does not participate in  either the Express Entry system or the PNP. Nunavut Territory, on the other hand, has no immigration program.

Many provinces held PNP draws in 2022. Let’s get an overview of the total invitations issued by specific provinces under Canadian PNP. 

Alberta

The PNP of Alberta is officially known as the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP). Alberta Express Entry stream is linked with the Express Entry system

Am I eligible for Canadian immigration by PNP?

Each of the PNP streams has its own criteria which can be accessed from the official website of the concerned PNP. 

A PNP stream might specifically target a certain category of immigrants, such as - 

  • Skilled workers
  • Semi-skilled workers
  • Students
  • Businesspeople

How can I apply to Canadian PNP?

The PNP application process will be as per the stream applying under. PNP streams that are linked with the Express Entry system offer ‘enhanced’ nominations. These have a completely online application process. 

Other PNP streams have ‘base’ nominations that usually involve a paper-based application process. 

As per the 2023-2025 Immigration Levels Plan, 105,500 will get Canada PR in 2023 by the PNP route, followed by another 110,000 the next year. For 2025, the overall admissions target of 500,000 newcomers will include 117,500 provincial nominees. 

Check your eligibility today. Free consultation provided.
