British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program invited 358 immigrant applicants to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence on November 10.
BC PNP issued invitations under the BC PNP Express Entry (EEBC) and Skills Immigration streams. Candidates were invited from BC PNP’s skilled worker, international graduate, and entry-level and semi-skilled subcategories.
The minimum score required for successful applicants was as follows:
Due to the impact of the coronavirus on BC businesses, certain occupations have been excluded from this draw. The BC PNP web page has a full list of excluded professions.
British Columbia Provincial Nomination Program (BC PNP) runs a round of invitations across its various categories and PNP feeds every week.
To apply for BC PNP’s Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC categories, candidates have to create an online profile through BC PNP’s online portal and register under its Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
All the applicants under the SIRS are assessed and assigned scores based on the credentials such as education level, work experience, English proficiency, and location of employment.
If an applicant is approved for a provincial nomination, they can then submit their application for Canada PR Visa with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Express Entry candidates who get a provincial nomination certificate are given a major boost of 600 CRS points for their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. These many points effectively guarantee an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a future Federal Express Entry draw.
Each week, B.C. issues invitations as part of its technical pilot.
The BC PNP introduced Tech Pilot to provide a fast-track immigration path for in-demand IT workers and international students. It operates through existing provincial immigration flows from British Columbia.
To be considered for immigration to British Columbia through this program, applicants must have a valid job offer in one of the 29 eligible occupations.
Occupations that are eligible for the BC PNP Tech Pilot include computer and information systems managers, civil engineers, web designers and developers, translators, and audio and video recording technicians, among others.
Unlike other PNP streams in British Columbia that require a permanent job offer, Tech Pilot job offers must be for a minimum of one year. However, job offers lasting longer than one year will still be eligible under the pilot project. Job must be full-time and from an eligible employer of the province.
Candidates who are invited to apply for Provincial Nomination have 30 days to submit a full application.
