British Columbia held a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw on March 30, in which it invited 311 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination to eventually help them secure Canda’s permanent residence (PR) Visa.
The province invited candidates under the 2 immigration categories:
Candidates are required to have a valid profile in the federal Express Entry pool, in order to be selected through the Express Entry BC category. Express Entry is Canada’s main pathway for skilled immigrants for obtaining Canada PR. Express Entry program has 3 economic class immigration categories:
Eligible candidates for Express Entry program are awarded a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score which is based on human capital factors such as age, education, official language proficiency and work experience.
Those candidates who receive a provincial nomination through the Express Entry BC stream or a similar stream under any other provincial nominee program (PNP), are awarded 600 CRS points, that effectively guarantees them an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada PR.
The Skills Immigration Category is meant for skilled and semi-skilled workers in high demand occupations in the province. For both the categories, candidates are required to register using the province’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS), in which eligible candidates are given a score based on factors like education, offer of employment, language ability, location in British Columbia and wage. In the latest selection round, the minimum score requirements stood between 102 and 105.
