Applicants first submit an Expression of interest (EOI) to the said province where their profile qualifies. Upon receiving an invitation to apply, their full application along with supporting documents is submitted to the provincial immigration department. There is a provincial application fee as well that is paid at this stage. Upon completion of the eligibility assessment nomination certificate is issued to the applicant along with a work Permit support letter.
Applicants then submit application for Permanent Resident Visa to the Federal government. Besides they may submit Work Permit application to come earlier and start working in the province as the federal processing of PR visa could be time consuming, particularly in case of Paper applications. The Federal government assesses applicant and his family for admissibility concerns as enumerated below.
