Note: No data is available for Ontario because of the low number of PNs nominated by that province. There was also insufficient data on certain provinces to report 3 and 5 years after landing

Note: Data for the Atlantic provinces could not be disaggregated due to the low numbers resulting from secondary migration. For the same reason, data is not available for the Atlantic provinces and Saskatchewan for 5 years after landing. On the other hand, data for Ontario is available because the province receives secondary migrants.
