British Columbia PNP invited 360 immigrant applicants to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence on November 25. Immigrants were issued invitations under BC PNP’s Express Entry (EEBC) and Skills immigration streams.
Applicants were invited from the sub-categories of Skilled Worker, Beginner and Semi-Skilled, and International Graduates.
The provincial scoring requirements for successful applicants were as follows:
BC PNP holds draws in two categories and streams of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) every week.
For a skilled immigrant to apply for BC PNP’s categories: Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC, they must first create an online profile and register under its Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
All the profiles under the BC PNP’s SIRS systems are ranked according to scores that are awarded to them based on factors such as work experience, language proficiency, education level, and location of job-offered.
Once an application is successfully accepted, candidates are given a provincial nomination certificate through which they can apply for a Canada PR Visa to the IRCC – Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
Express Entry applicants who receive a nomination from British Columbia will receive an additional 600 points for their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.
Express Entry candidates with these many points are effectively guaranteed an ITA in the next express entry draw to apply for Canada PR Visa.
Each week, B.C. issues invitations as part of its Tech Pilot.
The BC PNP Tech Pilot provides a fast-track immigration path for IT Workers whose occupations are in-demand in the province and international students. It operates through the existing provincial immigration channels in 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 under BC PNP Tech Pilot include Civil Engineers, web Designers and developers, Computer and information systems, among others.
Having a permanent job-offer with a minimum duration of one year is one of the major requirements under BC PNP Tech Pilot. However, job-offers can be more than one year of duration. Job-offered must be from an eligible employer of the province.
Candidates who are invited to apply for Provincial Nomination have 30 days to submit a full application.
