Provinces Welcome Newcomers Through Dedicated Programs 2023
This week, there were important developments in Canadian immigration. The provinces of Ontario, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Quebec, and Prince Edward Island (PEI) showed their dedication to welcoming new people. They chose candidates through their own immigration programs.
In Canada, both provincial and federal authorities work together to manage immigration. One important way for people to become permanent residents is through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Lets understand what were the main updates in all the provinces-
