This year, 2022, Canada’s PNP programs have done very well considering it is the 5rd month of the year. The provinces picked over 1663 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. Let us discuss the provinces now
