The cap also calls for issuing Provincial Attestation Letters (PALs). Now, the province will confirm the enrolment of international students in its DLIs by issuing a PAL. However, Canada has allocated the number of PALs provinces and territories can issue.

This is after considering multiple factors such as the number of DLIs, population size, provincial challenges etc. This is why Nova Scotia has 12,900 slots to issue PALs to applicants who enrol in its DLIs.
