The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is designed to address the specific needs of the workforce in 11 of Canada’s 13 provinces. To be eligible for the PNP program, you must have sufficient experience specifically in a particular area.
While not required, having a Red Seal Certificate will not only increase your chances of success in getting a job but also boost the PNP program application also.It shows that you can work anywhere in Canada because, you have met the national standard and provincial certification.
To ensure you get the best province for your trade, we have listed three major PNPs for trade workers in 2022.
