The largest provincial immigration draw happened this year in October 2018 through provincial immigration streams in Prince Edward Island, Ontario, Saskatchewan, and British Colombia.

Most Canadian provinces and territories have a Provincial Nominee Program that allows them to nominate a set of immigrants each year, each program have a number of immigration streams Many of the streams involved are linked to the federal Express Entry system, which manages the pool of candidates for Canada’s three main economic immigration program — the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.

Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination benefit from an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, which determines their position in the Express Entry pool of candidates.

The additional 600 points for a provincial nomination effectively guarantee Express Entry candidates an Invitation to Apply for Canadian permanent residence.
