Do You Know You Can Move To Any Province After Getting PR Through PNP?

Province in Canada through the Provincial Nominee Program under the Express Entry pool nominate qualified immigrants to come live and work in the province.

This move is a lure to attract immigrants with social and economic benefits to the province. Arguably this is one of the fastest routes to gain permanent resident status in Canada.

Canada is a diverse multi-cultural country, the importance and impact of immigration cannot be over-emphasized. Immigrants have directly contributed to the growth of every sector of the Canadian economy. Some Province needs qualified and eligible immigrants to supplement labor shortage and the aging population.

Most Provinces with exception to Quebec and Nunavut, immigration stream aligns with the Express Entry program.

Express Entry is an innovative immigration selection process conceived by the Canadian government to attract/lure skilled workers to immigrate to Canada. The skilled worker through their various expertise will contribute to the development agenda of Canada.

Interestingly the Provincial Nominee Program has had tremendous successes and Canada is set to increase the annual quota to boost the economic immigration stream. There are 80 different available PNP streams.

Candidates in Express Entry pool who is nominated by a province is awarded an incredible 600 Comprehensive Ranking System points. The Comprehensive Ranking System ranks individuals in the Express Entry pool based on some determining factors such as Age, Education, Experience etc.

Some Provinces frown at immigrants who upon arrival renege on their obligation, by moving to a different province, hence defeating the purpose of their nomination by the province.

The major reason Provinces nominate qualified and eligible candidates are the immediate economic contribution they will bring to the province. It is morally compelling to live and work in the province that nominates you for at least a period of two years.

However it is entirely legal to live and work anywhere your choice as a permanent resident, your right as a permanent resident to mobility is echoed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms which states “Every citizen of Canada and every person who has the status of a permanent resident of Canada has the right to move to and take up residence in any province, and to pursue the gaining of a livelihood in any province.”

Reasons Why You Could Leave The Province That Nominated You

But if you must leave, your reasons must be compelling and valid.

Job Offer: You could relocate if you have a better job offer outside your province with better remuneration and favorable working conditions than your current job. The onus is on you to convince your current employer with proofs that your claims are legitimate.

Unfavorable weather conditions: Most immigrants accept nominations without considering certain basic factors like the weather of the province they are moving to. Some provinces in Canada are extremely cold, most immigrants come from warmer clime, and adopting in such harsh environment could prove futile. However, you will have to prove your claims with definite proof, like medical reports.

Note: Canadians extol honesty and are extremely polite, do not take it for granted.  If Canadian immigration authorities catch a whiff of dishonesty on your claim, your application may be revoked.

Good luck in your endeavors!
