Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is an immigration program that allows provinces and territories of Canada to nominate eligible individuals who are interested in settling in a particular province. According to this program, Canadian provinces can go ahead and nominate individuals. Individuals who qualify are eligible for a permanent residence too.
The program was launched in the late 1990s to attract and retain skilled workers, entrepreneurs, and business persons and provide an opportunity for permanent residency in Canada.
