BC, Manitoba and Saskatchewan hold new immigration draws
Here is a look at Canada's provincial immigration draws for the week of May 2.
This past week, three Canadian provinces released their Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw results.
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. Although provincial nomination is not in itself the same as a permanent residence, it can significantly increase the chances of obtaining permanent resident status. For instance, PNP candidates with Express Entry profiles who receive a nomination get 600 points added to their score. They also become eligible to be invited to apply for a PNP-specific round of invitations.
