5. Can I apply to Express Entry and a PNP at the same time?
Yes. You can submit an Express Entry profile and also apply directly to a PNP stream at the same time.
One of the benefits of entering the Express Entry pool is you make yourself visible to provinces and territories who can review your profile and decide to provide you with an invitation to apply to their PNP. If you accept their invitation, you would submit a completed PNP application to the province or territory. Once you application is approved, you will receive a nomination certificate which will provide you with an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points under Express Entry, and virtually guarantee you will receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence under Express Entry.
