PNP Draw

“Four Canadian Provinces Extend Invitations in Latest PNP Results: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, and PEI”

According to the most recent Provincial Nominee Programme (PNP) draw results, candidates have been nominated for a provincial nomination by four of Canada’s provinces. 

The PNP is seen by the federal and provincial governments as a helpful mechanism for distributing the economic advantages of immigration to areas of the country outside of large urban centers. The federal and provincial governments share responsibility for immigration in Canada. 

The PNP allows provincial governments to put out nominations for individuals they believe have the best chance of integrating and establishing themselves economically in the province making the nomination. The process of becoming a permanent resident usually becomes less difficult once a candidate receives a PNP nomination. 


Results from seven separate draws conducted as part of the Alberta Advantage Immigration Programs have been made public by Alberta. The draws were held from May 9 to June 8. In 2023, Alberta will receive 9,750 allocations. 

Through the family connection and principal occupation in the demand stream, a total of 236 individuals were invited. 119 candidates were invited to the first draw on May 11, and 117 to the second draw on June 1. 

The lowest qualifying CRS score of 342 was used in a draw on May 30 for 20 applicants in the Priority Sector – Agriculture Occupation with Alberta Job Offer. 

The most recent draw, which took place on June 8, included 150 applicants with French as a First Language and an occupation in the Priority Sector of Agriculture. The minimum CRS score was 382.

British Columbia 

Three draws were held on June 13 to select candidates for British Columbia. BC regularly holds draws every Tuesday. 

The largest draw, which included candidates from Express Entry, the Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled streams of the BC PNP, as well as the Skilled Worker and International Graduate streams, invited 170 applicants.

The Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) required a minimum score between 87 and 107. Additionally, 18 educators and 23 assistants in early childhood education were also selected in a draw specifically for jobs in the healthcare industry. Both draws required candidates to have a minimum SIRS score of 60.


For applicants in the streams for skilled workers in Manitoba, the first draw was occupation specific. All told, 255 people with scores of at least 602 were nominated if they held jobs in the following major and sub-major groups of the National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2021: 

72 – Technical trades and transportation officers and controllers 

731 – General construction trades 

732 – Building maintenance installers, servicers, and repairers 

734 – Operators, drillers and blasters 

Additionally, 205 nominations were given out in a general draw for skilled workers in Manitoba, with a minimum score of 665.

In the two remaining draws, 59 nominations were made for candidates in the international education stream, and 21 nominations were made for candidates in the skilled workers overseas category, all with scores of 718.

Prince Edward Island 

On June 15, PEI held its second draw of the month. In the Prince Edward Island PNP Labor and Express Entry stream, 118 Expressions of Interest were sent to applicants, while four were sent to Business Work Permit Entrepreneur applicants who scored more above the required 82 points.
