Alongside Express Entry are the Provincial Nomination Programs, where candidates are directly nominated by various provinces based on the labor market requirement. The Labor Market is assessed thoroughly and a list is prepared stating the labor shortages that prevent economic growth and require instant attention. Provinces then nominate candidates from the Express Entry Pool to come and fill up these positions.
