Provincial Nominee Programs are designed to actively seek qualified immigrants to fill labour market shortages, or create employment and business opportunities in the province.
Most provinces have programs designed to attract entrepreneurs, investors and foreign workers.
Greater consideration will be given to those individuals whose employment will fill a skills shortage. For example, Saskatchewan has a Health Professions Category, a Farm Owner/Operator Category and a Long Haul Truck Drivers Project which are all designed to facilitate immigration to their province.
Often a close relative residing in the province who is willing and able to provide settlement assistance can be streamlined through a family reunification category.
International students who have graduated from a recognized post-secondary institution within certain provinces may qualify under an international graduate stream.
Minimum criteria and programs available within each province are constantly being updated.
