People who immigrate to Canada under the Provincial Nominee Program have the skills, education and work experience needed to make an immediate economic contribution to the province or territory that nominates them. They are ready to establish themselves successfully as permanent residents in Canada. To apply under the Provincial Nominee Program, applicants must be nominated by a Canadian province or territory.
Consult GB Canada to find all the information and required forms to apply as a provincial nominee. Because the criteria for provincial nomination are determined by the individual provinces and territories, they can change without notice.
For this reason, consult GB Canada before submitting your application.
Provincial nominees: Who can apply
Most provinces in Canada have an agreement with the Government of Canada that allows them to nominate immigrants who wish to settle in that province. If you choose to immigrate to Canada as a provincial nominee, you must first apply to the province where you wish to settle and complete its provincial nomination process. The province will consider your application based on its immigration needs and your genuine intention to settle there.
GB Canada will assist you in determining which provincial program is best suited to your circumstances and can provide you with the required expertise to properly submit your application.Here is a list of the provinces and territories currently participating in this program.
Since the criteria vary among the provinces, you should visit their websites for more information.

After GB Canada assists you with a successful nomination by a province or territory, you have to make a separate application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for permanent residence. A CIC officer will then assess your application based on Canadian immigration regulations.
GB Canada will provide you with the added advantage of properly structuring legal arguments in what may become a complicated process.
