Canada PNP Programs Where you can apply without A Job Offer




Canada is a great destination for people who intend to build their businesses, education, finance, and social life. Canada extends a welcoming hand to immigrants who intend to live in any of its provinces and they are encouraged to apply through a paper-based process or through its online process by express entry.

However, a lot of people apply through the express process in order to access the provincial nominee programs(PNP). Each province has it’s own PNP program and how you apply depends on the PNP program that you’re applying to but first, you need to meet the requirements that make you eligible to apply to a province.
In order to motivate people to stay and earn an honest living, there are five(5) Canadian provinces whose PNP programs do not require a job offer.

These provinces offer immigration to applicants without a valid job offer on the basis that they are able and willing to work. The criteria for being eligible for their PNP program includes scoring at least 60 points in the province’s point grade system, identity proof, at least one year of tertiary education, at least one year of working experience in the last ten years relating to a specific field or occupation, and legal age, amongst others.

One of the most common mistakes people seeking jobs are doing is bombing their same resume or cover letter to so many different companies. Most companies have hired 3rd party networks to handle the applications and there are chances that the same 3rd party company will receive your application for different job applications. Be selective in your job search and apply for a job you feel you are the right candidate for, do not form an attitude of I can do any job anywhere.


3. Be enthusiastic

Make sure you have a contact for the company and follow up within a week of submitting your resume to show your interest. “Thank-you” emails after an interview set you apart from other candidates applying for jobs in Canada. These marginal gains can add up to getting a job in Canada.


4. Use the resources available to you

Websites such as LinkedIn or Indeed are the best tools to look for a job. The Linkedin tool for professionals is effective in your online resume and network building. Recruiters and employers are using this tool every day to source candidates for jobs in Canada. Further, you will find lots of job listings in indeed website.

Your profession may require your foreign qualifications to be accredited in Canada. Professions such as teaching, physiotherapy, nursing, and social work, among others, usually require additional accreditation. This process can take a while, so be prepared.
