PNP is the Provincial Nominee program and it is run by the provincial government. Actually these are mini immigration programs that allow provinces to select immigrants who meet a specific need and then nominate them to become Canadian permanent residents. For example, if a province has a shortage of electrical engineers, they might prioritize bringing electrical engineers through their PNP.

However, all the final immigration decisions are made at the federal level not at the provincial level this is why it is called provincial nomination because the province nominates you so you can then apply to the federal government for your PR. Let’s explain how it works. For instance, we have the Express entry pool and they are scored from a total of 1200 points let’s say at the CRS draw.

If the cutoff score was minimum 450 points, all the people above 450 or some with 450 points will get invitation to apply for their PR and the left out people who had 450 or less can apply for PNP for different provinces and if they meet the eligibility criteria for any province they will receive an invite from that province and they will get additional 600 points which will increase your CSS score.

Now let’s have a look at the provinces which participate in PNP
Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories and all the provinces have their own criteria for the selection. 9 out of 10 participate in PNP except Quebec because Quebec has its own immigration program and from territories, Nunavut does not participate in PNP.
