The Northwest Territories’ Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is an immigration program operated on behalf of the Government of the Northwest Territories with Citizenship and Immigration Canada to fast-track the processing of an application for permanent residency.
The Nominee Program helps strengthen the Northwest Territories economy by attracting qualified individuals to fill critical labour shortages and promote business development. The Nominee Program can assist employers in recruiting and retaining foreign workers and can help foreign workers and their families make the Northwest Territories their permanent home.
Individuals nominated by the Northwest Territories are eligible to apply for permanent residency through Citizenship and Immigration Canada as part of the Provincial Nominee stream. The processing of a nominee’s application for permanent residence through Citizenship and Immigration Canada is generally faster than other immigration classes. Citizenship and Immigration Canada makes final decisions on the applications
Successful applicants will receive a Northwest Territories Nominee Certificate, which will speed-up the Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa application processing times. Under the Northwest Territories Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), you may qualify under one of three streams.
