The eight steps of the Canadian Immigration Process - Provincial Nominee Programs
Applying to immigrate to Canada as a Provincial Nominee is a two-stage process. Applications are first submitted to immigration authorities in the intended destination province, and once applicants are nominated their applications must be submitted to federal immigration authorities.
