The British Columbia Express Entry component is one of many provincial programs across the country aligned with the federal government’s Express Entry system.
The Express Entry system is used by the federal government to manage applications for permanent residence under the three main economic programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Category (FSTP) and Category Canadian experience (CEC).
Many provinces also use the system to manage their own provincial appointment requests.
Express Entry applicants who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 Global Ranking System (CRS) points, which practically guarantees an invitation to apply for permanent residence in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
With regard to the Immigration Skills component, applicants were invited to the Skilled Worker, International Graduate, and entry and semi-skilled categories.
The minimum number of points required by the province in the draw was between 76 and 98, depending on the category.
The minimum scores for each category were as follows:
Applicants interested in applying through the British Columbia Express Entry stream must have a Federal Express Entry profile and register with the province’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
Applicants interested in applying via the Immigration Skills component must only be registered in the SIRS.
