This week, British Columbia (B.C.), Quebec, and Alberta have extended invitations to provincial immigration candidates for nomination or selection.

Every Canadian province and territory, except for Nunavut and Quebec, operates Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs). Immigration is a shared responsibility between federal and provincial/territorial governments. PNPs allow these governments to attract skilled immigrants who can help meet regional labor market needs and address demographic challenges.

Note: Quebec does not have a PNP due to an agreement with the federal government, granting Quebec control over its economic immigration.
