I was nominated by the province to immigrate to Canada, what should I do?

After the province or territory approves your application and you have a Provincial Nominee Certificate, your next step is to apply for permanent residence within the time period they set out.

The type of nomination issued to you by the province or territory will determine how you will apply for permanent residence with us. If you were nominated under a province or territory’s Express Entry stream, you will need to create an Express Entry profile, if you do not already have one, and apply for permanent residence online. The system will guide you through the application process.

For all other nominations, fill out the forms using the instruction guide to help you. This guide will also tell you all the documents you need to send with your forms, and where to send them.
