Canadian immigration has been undergoing a revelation since the start of this year, in fact November 2016. 2017 has seen a spike in number of people receiving invites for the next round of visa processing , and many of them have been offered a chance to become a Permanent Resident Canada through PNPs.
This may come in as a surprise to many people since before November 2016, a mere 13% people used to receive advice from the interested provinces to move ahead with next set of requests; the number of advisories being issued has risen to a whopping 25% of all the ITAs or NOIs – similar to ITAs.
The Rising Importance of PNPs in Canada Immigration Permanent Resident
Since last quarter of 2016, a surprising trend has been observed in the Maple Leaf country, where the federal government expressed more faith on the Provincial Schemes of Immigration. This has paved way for a higher allocation in terms of slots for PR visa for aliens.
The new introductions have been path breaking and a welcoming change; this has really encouraged many Canadian states to come up with more expansive provincial nomination schemes.
Now several occupations have been exempted from LMIA’s requirement – the biggest factor that deterred employers from hiring overseas workers, which has come in a much awaited relief for both the employers, as well as the immigrants; and the states are now allowed to select applicants both from their Express Entry linked schemes, as well from their independent initiatives, etc.
The Province backed Provincial Nomination Programs in 2017
The first half of 2017 saw many states waking up from the deep slumber, with British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Saskatchewan launching their local and EE initiatives.
Saskatchewan opened up the doors to requests from probable entrants twice this year, and as anticipated, it was well received by the interested people. This edition of program closed quickly with slotted 600 requests being lodged instantly.
Similarly, Nova Scotia also opened up its portal for the receipt of the requests though it has been suspended due to some technical issues, and is expected to reopen soon. Ontario with its two schemes is expected to become regular, which in the past used to be quite irregular and unpredictable. On the closing note, BC also selected over 125 applicants for Permanent Resident visa.
