Ontario and British Columbia hold new PNP draws

Ontario and British Columbia released Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw results this week.

Most Canadian provinces and territories (with the exception of Quebec and Nunavut) operate their own PNPs. Through these programs, interested candidates may be invited to apply for a provincial nomination.
When the PNP was launched in 1998, it welcomed only 400 immigrants. However, it proved to be very successful, and Canada now welcomes more than 80,000 immigrants per year through PNPs.
The increase in the number of PNP admissions in Canada is due to the fact that the federal and provincial governments consider it an effective tool to promote the economic development of the country.
