BC PNP Invites 279 Immigrants in the Biggest Provincial Draw Since the Month of March

BC PNP Invites 279 immigrants in the biggest provincial draw since the month of March

Latest BC PNP draw held on June 2 invites 279 immigrants with 38 invitations also issued to candidates under its entrepreneurs’ categories for provincial nomination to apply for Canada PR Visa

The latest weekly provincial BC PNP – British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program held on June 2, issued a total of 279 invitations with 38 invitations issued to entrepreneur candidates and another 241 to Skilled workers and International graduate candidates for provincial nomination.

Invitations were issued to candidates who have applied for a provincial nomination through BC PNP’s two immigration categories: Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skills immigration. The minimum score required to get an invitation varies for each category.

Following is the cut-off score required for EEBC category:

  • Skilled Worker: 105 points
  • International Graduate: 105 points

For the EEBC category, candidates are required to have a valid express entry profile under the federal government’s express entry program. If they are able to get a provincial nomination, express entry candidates are given a major boost of 600 CRS – Comprehensive Ranking System points. These many points effectively guarantee an ITA – Invitation to Apply to submit the application for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

The cut-off scores for the three Skills Immigration sub-categories are as follows:

  • Skilled Workers: 105 points
  • International Graduate: 105 points
  • Entry Level and Semi-Skilled: 81 points

BC PNP has indicated the impact of coronavirus on the provincial draws, with occupations related to several sales and service being excluded from the draws.

For the first time in two months, BC PNP has invited candidates from its entrepreneur stream. Two draws were held in what were the sixth and seventh entrepreneur draws held by the province in the year 2020.

With a total of 29 invitations issued under the BC PNP’s Entrepreneur Immigration Base Category, the cut-off score was set at 121 points.

The main motive for the Base category is to welcome established entrepreneurs from around the world who want to start their own business or buy an existing business. Applicants are assessed based on credentials like business experience, net worth, education, business plan, and the total amount they will be investing in the business.

Another 9 invitations were issued under BC PNP’s Entrepreneur Immigration – Regional Pilot category, with the minimum score required to set at 118 points. This pilot immigration program was launched in 2015, to help the smaller communities in the province to start a new business. Candidates under this category are assessed on the same criteria as a Base category, but with some difference based on the factors like net worth and minimum investment thresholds.
