Today most people prefer Canada as their immigration destination. People get a lot of advantages after immigrating to Canada. They get nominated within 6 months, add get extra 600 points to their CRS score; they can select from over 80 PNP streams, and also get free health care and schooling for children. Through the Express Entry Program, many Indians apply for Canada PR, but this process always not being fruitful for all. PNP is a much easier process to move to Canada. It has very simple and relaxed eligibility criteria.
There are two different methods for applying to Canada PR. The first method is to contact a province or Territory and request nomination under their Express Entry stream. After acceptance of the candidate's request, he or she can make an Express Entry profile. Then the candidate will receive electronically his or her nomination.
In the second method, the candidate has to make an Express Entry profile specifically mentioned the interested provinces and territories. After receiving the notification of interest from a province or territory, the candidate can contact directly and may apply for Express Entry stream. After the selection of nomination electronically, the candidate just has to accept that.

|If the province accepts your request for a nomination, you can make an Express Entry profile and show that you have been nominated||Once you receive a “notification of interest” from a province or territory in your account, you can contact them directly|
|You will receive your nomination electronically through your account, which you will need to accept||Apply to their Express Entry stream|
