While Citizenship and Immigration Canada has the final say in all immigration decisions outside Quebec, provinces can nominate specific immigration individuals. The Provincial Nominee Program in Canada (PNP program) allows provinces to recruit workers to fill unique provincial economic needs. The PNP program also offers skilled immigrants greatly improved chances for successful entry to Canada.
