Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) had seen major developments last year. PNP allows the participating Canadian provinces and territories to nominate candidates from the Federal Express Entry pool. Nominated candidates receive an additional 600 points to their CRS score. It increases their probability of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in the next Federal draw.
The following provinces/territories have their own Provincial Nominee Program:
|Alberta||British Columbia||Manitoba||New Brunswick|
|Newfoundland and Labrador||Nova Scotia||Ontario|
|Prince Edward Island||Saskatchewan||Northwest Territories||Yukon|

In 2018, 34,700 candidates were nominated through PNP (an increase of 1300 from 2017). It is expected that there will be more nominations this year. However, IRCC has not released any numbers yet.
Within the first week of 2019, a couple of draws have already been held in the provinces of British Columbia and Saskatchewan.
- On January 2, BC issued the first invitations to candidates in Skilled Worker, International Graduate and Skills Immigration — Entry Level and Semi-Skilled. The lowest scores were 85 for Skilled Worker, 95 for International Graduate and 68 for Entry Level and Semi-Skilled. A total of 151 invitations were issued.
