The process is similar to the Entrepreneur Category. It also has four steps. First, you must register your Expression of Interest to the SINP, and you will be given a point score. Those with the highest points are selected in each draw.
If successful, you will be selected and invited to submit an application. You will then have to submit an application directly to the SINP through the SINP Apply Online system. You must also submit a Business Establishment Plan (BEP) that corresponds to the information you submitted in your EOI.
If you pass this stage, you will have to sign a Business Performance Agreement (BPA). This will be based on the BEP you submitted.
The next step is to actively operate your proposed business, within the terms of the BPA. You must fulfil the BPA requirements before your PGWP expires.
After the conditions of the BPA are met, you can then apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence. With a nomination, you will be able to apply for permanent residence directly with IRCC.
