Best Canadian Province for Families

Canada is a vast country with 13 provinces, each with its own unique features and requirements. To determine the best province to live in Canada, it is important to consider Provincial Nomination Programs (PNPs). Manitoba is open to international students, offering three primary pathways to gaining a provincial nomination: the Career Employment Pathway, Graduate Internship Pathway, and International Student Entrepreneur Pilot. Saskatchewan has four PNPs: the International Skilled worker Category, Saskatchewan Work Experience Category, Entrepreneur Category, and Farm Owner and Operator Category. New Brunswick falls under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot and also has its own Express Entry Stream, Skilled Workers’ Stream, and Entrepreneurial stream. Newfoundland and Labrador has many of the same PNP categories as New Brunswick and also has an International Graduate Category and an International Graduate Entrepreneur Category. Prince Edward Island also falls under the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program and has its own Express Entry, Skilled Workers, International Graduate, and Entrepreneurship streams, as well as the Prince Edward Island Critical Workers Stream and the Skilled Workers Outside Canada Stream. Nova Scotia has the most PNP categories, including an entrepreneur, International Graduate, International Graduate Entrepreneur, Skilled Worker Streams, and two Express Entry Streams. The Nova Scotia Labour Market Priorities Stream exclusively picks candidates from the national express entry pool if their skills fill the needs of the Nova Scotia job market.
