Canada Immigration Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) overview for April 2022 Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news and I am Joy Stephen, an authorized Canadian Immigration practitioner bringing out this release of the PNP overview for the month of April, 2022 from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario. Today is the 7th of May, 2022. This year, 2022, Canada’s PNP programs have done very well considering it is the 4th month of the year. The provinces picked over 2990 people for possible PNP programs in a month. The PNP program offers Provinces the choice of selecting their own residents. Most funded services for citizens are offered by Provinces to their residents like Health Care and Education. Even though FSWP and CEC is temporarily stopped, PNP’s have the tendency of being processed because the needs of provinces must be met. However, keep in mind, that Federal programs for FSWP and CEC is opening on July 2022, which is just 2 months away. Let us discuss the provinces now
