What is your score right now?

PNPs mostly benefit people who have some kind of connection to the province, though not all of them do. There's also the Atlantic pilot, though you need a job offer for that: https://www.immigroup.com/atlantic-immigration-pilot-program

The short answer is "a job offer."

So a job offer solves this problem. But if you can't get one, I'd go through the various PNPs and see where their draws are right now. You can also make your profile open to all of them and see what happens.
