If you are interested in receiving a nomination from the BC PNP, here are the 6 steps you need to follow.

STEP 1: Check your eligibility: First, you need to ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria for one of the BC PNP streams. These eligibility criteria may vary depending on the stream you are applying for. Skills Immigration is made up of five streams:

STEP 2: Submit an Expression of Interest (EOI): If you meet the eligibility criteria, you will need to create an online profile with the BC PNP and submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). Your EOI will be assigned a CRS score based on factors such as your education, work experience, language skills, and other factors.

STEP 3: Receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA): Based on your CRS score, you may be invited to apply to the BC PNP. If you receive an ITA, you will have 30 days to submit a complete application.

STEP 4: Submit a complete application: Once you receive an ITA, you will need to submit a complete application, including all the required documents and supporting evidence.

STEP 5: Attend an interview: Depending on the stream you are applying for, you may be required to attend an interview with a BC PNP representative.

STEP 6: Receive a nomination: If your application is successful, you will receive a nomination from the BC PNP. This nomination will allow you to apply for Canada PR.

It's important to note that the BC PNP is a highly competitive program, and meeting the eligibility criteria does not guarantee that you will receive a nomination. Therefore, it's essential to ensure that your application is as strong as possible by providing all the required documentation and presenting your qualifications and experience in the best possible light.

Good Luck!
