For 2015, that allocation was 5,500 and the province negotiated an additional 300 to achieve 5,800 – more than any other province.
The 2016 PNP allocation from the federal government has yet to be confirmed.
Since the 2001 inception of the program, more than 34,000 workers and entrepreneurs have been attracted to the province through the PNP.
