British Columbia PNP invited 76 immigrant applicants to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence on Nov. 17.
The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) issued invitations under the BC Express Entry (EEBC) and Skills Immigration streams.
Applicants were invited into the skilled worker, international graduates, and entry-level and semi-skilled subcategories as part of the BC PNP technical pilot project. Invited applicants must have job offers in an eligible technology occupation to receive the nomination.
The minimum score required for successful applicants was 80 in all categories.
BC PNP hosts draw in two categories and streams of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) every week.
To apply under the BC PNP’s Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC categories, applicants must first create a profile through the BC PNP online portal and register under its Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
All the applications for provincial nomination are assessed and assigned a score based on factors such as education level, work experience, English proficiency, and location of employment.
If an applicant is successfully processed and is selected for a provincial nomination, they can then use their provincial nomination to apply for permanent residence with Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) under the PNP.
Express Entry candidates who get a provincial nomination for BC PNP are given a major boost of 600 CRS points in their Express Entry profile. These express entry candidates are effectively guaranteed 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 Tech Pilot is a fast-track immigration path for in-demand IT workers and international students. It operates through BC’s existing provincial immigration streams.
For a candidate to be considered for a provincial nomination through BC PNP, they must have a valid job offer in one of the 29 eligible skilled occupations.
BC PNP Tech pilot includes the following mentioned skilled occupations that are eligible for the program like 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 which require a permanent job offer, Tech Pilot job offers must be for a minimum of one year. Only the job-offers that are of a minimum of one year of duration are eligible under the Tech pilot project, and they must be full-time and from an eligible employer of the province.
All the successful candidates who get provincial nomination has 30 days to submit a full application.
