2. How does the PNP process work?

The process depends on which PNP stream you are applying to. PNP streams either have a paper-based process or an online process through Express Entry.

The biggest benefit of going through an Express Entry stream is you can have your permanent residence application processed by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada within 6 months, compared with longer processing times for paper-based applications.

When you reach the permanent residence application phase of the process, everyone needs to complete medical and police checks.

Paper-based process:

Step 1: Find out if you are eligible for the PNP.

Step 2: Apply to a given PNP stream.

Step 3: If you are nominated (approved) by the province or territory, submit a paper application for permanent residence to IRCC.

Step 4: Pass a medical exam and get a police check.

Step 5: Once you are approved by IRCC, you can complete your permanent residence landing in Canada.

Express Entry process:

Step 1: Find out if you are eligible for the PNP.

Step 2: Apply to a given PNP stream.

Step 3: If you receive a provincial nomination, create an Express Entry profile on IRCC’s website and indicate you have been nominated.

Step 4: Once you receive an Express Entry invitation to apply for permanent residence from IRCC, submit your permanent residence application to IRCC.

Step 5: Pass a medical exam and get a police check.

Step 6: Once you are approved by IRCC, you can complete your permanent residence landing in Canada.

Alternatively, you can submit an Express Entry profile to IRCC and then indicate to provinces and territories which jurisdictions you are interested in. A province or territory can then send you a “notification of interest”. You can then contact the province or territory to go through the provincial nomination process. Once you obtain the provincial nomination certificate, you will receive 600 additional Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points which will essentially guarantee that you will get a permanent residence invitation from IRCC. Once you get this invitation, you go ahead and submit your permanent residence application to IRCC, pass a medical exam and get a police check, and then eventually complete your permanent residence landing in Canada.
