Canada PNP General Skilled Workers
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) for General Skilled
Workers specifically caters to applicants applying under a particular
province (barring Quebec which has its own set of selection criteria),
with the state having the sovereignty over the procedures set under the
program. Majority of Canadian provinces like Alberta, Manitoba, British
Columbia, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, to name a few have an accord with
the Canadian government which allows them to nominate applicants under
the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) category.
You as the prospective applicant to Canada would be nominated by the government
of relevant provinces, subject to an available offer of employment from
a provincial employer. A thorough assessment of your profile from the
provincial immigration authorities mean you would be granted a PR status
of that particular province!
As mentioned earlier, if you as a potential applicant to Quebec are willing
to file under the Quebec PNP for skilled workers, businessmen and investor
category, it is advised to file a separate application followed by the
granting of a Quebec Selection Certificate from the government of Quebec.
