(c.) Provincial Nomination Program (PNP): – British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) – https://www.welcomebc.ca/Immigrate-to-B-C/BC-PNP-Skills-Immigration/Health-Care-Professional
BC PNP is created specifically for physicians, nurses, psychiatric nurses & RN practitioners.
An added advantage is that British Columbia needs more health care professionals. The Skills Immigration (SI) – Healthcare Professional category of the BC PNP helps physicians, specialists, nurses and allied health professionals work in BC and gain permanent residence.
The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is also a great program for nurses, physicians and other healthcare professionals.
As always, It is important to have a timeline for each stage of an immigration process as rushing can be overwhelming & lead to information overload.
Also, regulatory bodies involved have FAQs on online & respond on time should you have questions.
