How Should I settle in Canada with a PR Visa?
In keeping with its outreach to welcoming immigrants, the Canadian government permits territories and provinces under its jurisdiction to nominate a person who wants to relocate permanently to Canada in accordance with their own immigration criteria, qualifications, and parameters appropriate for the territory or province's labor market and economy. In other words, the territory or province will base the selection process on its economic needs, including the applicant's sincere desire to relocate to the area.

What is Canada PNP Program?
According to the Canadian Constitution, the administration of the nation's immigration policy is divided between the federal government and each province and territory.
Due to this, the Canada PNP Program enables Canadian provinces and territories to nominate people who want to immigrate to Canada and who are interested in relocating to a certain province. Quebec and the territory of Nunavut in Northern Canada are the sole exceptions. Instead, Quebec has the authority to set its own standards for deciding who can immigrate for economic purposes.
The PNP's primary goal is to distribute the advantages of immigration across Canada. Most immigrants to Canada settled in Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia previously to the PNP's 1998 start. The Prairie provinces (Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba) and the Atlantic provinces (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador) have had greater success luring immigrants since 1998, thanks in large part to the PNP. As a result, there has been a wider distribution of immigration across Canada since 1998.
