Moving to another province after nomination

    Since the Provincial Nominee Program is applied for a specific province, what happens if the employee has to move to another province after receiving the nomination? Do they have to re-apply to remain a permanent resident? And do they lose the permanent resident status if they get fired or the employer goes out of business (since this nomination is issued by the employer's request, as I understand)?

    It depends on the specific program you've been approved under. Generally, once a worker receives permanent residence it won't generally be revoked once he or she arrives (generally speaking, there are exceptions). Business immigrants have further requirements once they arrive and their permanent residence status can be revoked, again, depending on the program.

    Oh, I see. So if someone receives permanent residence for one province, it applies to Canada as a whole? Or are there also province-bound permanent residences? It looks like business immigrants have the most demanding requirements for staying in Canada. Although, seeing how many enterpreneurs there seem to be in the States, it's understandable that you wouldn't just let all of them in on the merit of their business ambition :)
