What is the difference between Express Entry and PNP for Canada?

Both Express Entry and Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) are immigration programs for Canada that varies in their nature of selection and processing.

Both of these programs invites skilled workers to Canada who are willing to contribute their skills towards the development of the economy.
Let me point out the differences between the programs:
Express Entry is a federal program. Introduced in 2015, its main motive is drive of skilled workers into the country.
It is being introduced so that the processing time can be reduced down significantly. Also, it replaces the earlier model of ‘First-come, First served’ and takes applicants based on their Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS).
These points are awarded on the basis of-
a) Age, education, work experience and language skills of the candidate
b) French language ability, Relative living in Canada, etc.
c) Nomination from a province, Job offer letter from Canada, etc.
The other set of programs called Provincial Nomination Programs (PNPs) are on the other hand are designed in order to meet the local labour shortages.
Canada has 10 big and small provinces each with their own nominee programs to let skilled worker come there and work.
Few popular PNPs are: Saskatchewan PNP, Nova Scotia PNP, Ontario PNP, Prince Edward Island PNP and Manitoba PNP.
Coming to the processing time, Both Express Entry and Provincial Nominee Programs take their own time.
While Express Entry has a fast processing period of usually 6–8 months, Provincial Nominee Program usually takes a bit longer.
Different PNPs are having different processing time. You can get a fair idea about Processing time of each PNP from official website of different provinces.
Processing time of your application also subject to simplicity/ complexity of your case and therefore can vary.
