How does the BC PNP work?

The province of British Columbia plays a key role in helping “support & sustain” the Canadian economy. Its managed Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is one of the most sought-after Canada Immigration pathways for aspiring immigrants from across the world. The BC PNP runs on a point-based system – that is designed to provide a direct pathway for potential immigrants wanting to study, work, invest, and settle in British Columbia.

The BC PNP currently manages two broad categories:

  • British Columbia Skills Immigration
  • British Columbia Entrepreneur Immigration

Candidates are ranked & evaluated based on the points achieved under the BC PNP points calculator. Points are assigned based on factors such as Age, Education, Work Experience, Language Proficiency, Adaptability, and Spousal Sponsorship.

Candidates with the highest scores are issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to the BC PNP. BC PNP draws are usually conducted on a weekly basis. The size, frequency, and cut-off scores of the next BC PNP draw are determined by the province’s application backlog and inventory at that time. The BC PNP does not post the dates beforehand.
