Canadian PR (Permanent Residency) is something that you ‘Earn’ than you ‘Get’. Targeting and settling in a province has a huge procedure in-between, which blocks many applicants, halting their progress straight off.

A stack of documents and a mind-numbing process that leads nowhere but back to zero is an absolute waste of time and valuable energy.

Learning where to invest your time and apply where you can get acknowledged back is fortunately not rocket science. This article is designed to throw some light on the same. PNPs aka Provincial Nominee Programs let provinces nominate candidates for PR that fit their Labor market needs. Assessing their In-demand occupation list can be the first pre-step of applying for PNP. However, won’t it get easier if you already know which provinces provide a practical way of getting PR?

Check out which three top provinces have a high acceptance rate that can make your journey to Canadian PR smooth sailing.


Saskatchewan demands skilled workers that have at least one year of experience in a job listed in its In-Demand Occupations List. Saskatchewan also expects the candidate to have completed at least one year of post-secondary education.

More candidates can apply for this province due to the expansion of the in-demand occupation list.

Divided into two categories, the first is the express entry of Saskatchewan, which requires the candidate to have his active express entry profile. The second is the in-demand occupation of Saskatchewan, for which the candidate may not have an express entry profile.


Alberta has the second largest student population in Canada, marking it important in terms of education as well as post-study job opportunities.

Alberta coordinates with the express entry pool and invites candidates to apply via Alberta’s express entry stream. To be eligible for this PNP, you need a minimum of 300 CRS to score, making it no sweat. As soon as you respond to their notification of interest – securing provincial nominations – the CRS points gain a direct escalation of 600 points, confirming your selection from the express entry pool.


To fill its skilled workers’ gap, Ontario surveys through express entry pool to find skilled workers that can meet its requirements. However, Ontario Human Priorities Stream has not mentioned its exact criteria of selection.

Ontario offers notification of interest to candidates that hold a 400 CRS score or more. It might sound like a tough nut to crack, but once in Ontario offers opportunities like no other. Under the umbrella of the human capital priorities stream, Ontario recently began targeting tech workers, whereby candidates were required to have employment experience in one of the six mentioned NOC codes.         

Other than this, candidates with proficient French skills are selected for PNP through the French-Speaking Skilled Workers stream. This can be a great shot for French speakers.

What’s left unsaid?

There are more than 80 PNPs, and for many, finding the perfect province may seem like finding a needle in a haystack. Narrowing your options is a task—tidy, time-intensive, and numbing.
