British Columbia welcomed 232 migration prospects through Provincial Nominee Program(PNP) draws hung on January 11.


The province held 2 draws through the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program(BC PNP) and welcomed prospects from the Skills Immigration(SI) and Express Entry BC(EEBC) streams.

Invitations were released to those from the Skilled Worker, International Graduate along with Entry Level and Semi-Skilled sub-categories of SI and EEBC streams.

The bulk of the invites, 201, were sent out through a basic draw. These prospects got invites if they fulfilled the minimum rating requirements in between 78 and 110 depending upon the program for which they are qualified.

Another draw targeted prospects whose profession falls under NOC 0621 (retail and wholesale trade supervisors) or NOC 0631 (dining establishment and food service supervisors). That draw led to 31 invites with minimum ratings of 110 throughout the board.

Since last February, British Columbia has actually been performing a different round of invites two times a month as part of its PNP program. These draws are being held due to the high variety of prospects from specific labour market sectors who are signed up in the province’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).

About the BC PNP

The BC PNP intends to draw in foreign employees who remain in high need in the province and who want to end up being irreversible citizens of Canada.

The BC PNP has 2 primary migration streams, Skills Immigration and Express Entry, both of which are divided into sub-categories. These streams are handled under B.C.’s Skills Immigration Registration System(SIRS). In order to use through the SIRS, you are very first needed to sign up an account. When this is done, you will be appointed a rating based upon aspects such as education, work experience, and language abilities.

The highest-scoring prospects from each sub-category are then welcomed to make an application for a provincial election to look for irreversible residency when British Columbia carries out among its routine draws.

If you got an invite you will have 30 days from the date of the invite to send a total application through the BC PNP online system.

Once you send a total BC PNP application bundle you will be alerted of the province’s choice within around 2 to 3 months. If your election achieves success, you end up being qualified to use to Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada(IRCC) for irreversible resident status under the Provincial Nominee Class.

The election stands for around 6 months from the date of verification.

As a provincial candidate, you might get an extra 600 points under the CRS and for that reason have a rating high enough to get an Invitation to Apply(ITA) throughout a subsequent federal Express Entry draw
