If you are serious about immigrating to Canada, you’ve probably heard about Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). These are unique immigration programs operated by Canada’s individual provinces. Each PNP is different, designed to fill a gap in the labour force of that province.

In this article, we take a look at the provinces seeking immigrants with work experience in certain in-demand occupations. Keep reading below to find out more, or complete a free online assessment and we’ll contact you to discuss your immigration eligibility!

The PNP does not require a job offer from an employer in the province.
