Three Provinces Select Candidates in Latest Provincial Immigration Results

Three provinces of Canada British Columbia, Quebec, and Manitoba have issued invitations to apply for their respective provincial immigration programs.   Two of the provinces British Columbia and Manitoba  have conducted draws under their Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), while Quebec used its distinct selection system to invite candidates. These programs are vital for provincial governments to select economic immigration candidates who can easily integrate into their local workforce.

The Provincial Nominee Program migration system 


• The PNP system reflects the shared responsibility between the federal and provincial governments in managing immigration. 
• Each province receives an annual allocation of nominations to issue to potential immigrants. 
• Successful candidates who obtain a provincial nomination have a stronger chance of securing permanent residence through Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
• Quebec, however, operates differently due to a unique agreement with the federal government. 
• Instead of using a PNP, Quebec autonomously selects its economic immigrants and issues a certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ) to invited candidates.

What have been the Provincial Immigration Results (June 1 - June 7)?

British Columbia
On June 4 the  British Columbia province had issued 68 invitations to apply through the BCPNP in four occupation-specific draws targeting Skilled Worker and International Graduate streams which  included Express Entry BC.

  • Tech Occupations: 33 invitations with a minimum score of 122, the highest in this draw.
  • Healthcare Occupations: 13 invitations with a minimum score of 100.
  • Childcare Occupations: 8 invitations with a minimum score of 93.
  • Construction Occupations: 14 invitations with a minimum score of 93.

Quebec released results for a draw held on May 30. The province invited 1,441 candidates to apply for permanent selection. The criteria for this draw included:

  • A level 7 oral proficiency or higher in French according to the Échelle québécoise des niveaux de compétence en français or its equivalent.
  • A score of 591 points or higher.
  • Candidates with valid job offers outside the territory of the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal were also considered.

On June 6 the province of  Manitoba issued 254 Letters of Advice to apply to the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). Among these, 35 were issued to candidates with a valid Express Entry profile number and job seeker validation code. The invitations were distributed across three categories:

  • Skilled Workers in Manitoba: 134 letters issued with a minimum score of 834.
  • International Education Stream: 74 letters issued without a minimum score requirement.
  • Skilled Workers Overseas Stream: 45 letters issued through a Strategic Recruitment Initiative with a minimum score of 708.

These latest draws highlight the ongoing efforts of provinces to attract skilled immigrants who meet specific labor market needs.

By targeting specific occupations and skills in the  provinces it is ensured that a more efficient and effective integration of new immigrants into their economies
