Most territories and provinces in Canada can nominate immigrants in the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). These immigrants must live and work in the province for few years as each province has its eligibility criteria for the program. While some provinces may design their programs to attract students and business people, others may target skilled or semi-skilled workers. Some provinces also run with Express Entry programs. To migrate to Canada via the PNP the applicant must first apply for a nomination to the desired province. Once nominated, they may then apply for permanent residency.
