The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC-PNP) issued 284 invitations to apply (ITA) for a provincial nomination to skills immigration and express entry candidates on January 28, 2020. A provincial nomination issued under the BC-PNP Express Entry BC category results in an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. The additional points will move Express Entry candidates to the front line for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in a subsequent federal draw. Candidates nominated under BC-PNP Skills Immigration Stream can apply for Canadian permanent residency through paper-based application.
Candidates interested in applying for immigration to Canada through BC-PNP must first create an online profile using the BC-PNP’s online registration system (skills immigration registration system) and submit a completed form. Candidate profiles are assessed and assigned a score based on various factors (e.g. education, work experience, offered wage, regional district of employment, English proficiency etc.)
British Columbia (BC) is the westernmost province of Canada, located between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. British Columbia is leading the country in economic growth and continues to rely on economic immigration to meet labour market demand. The BC Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is the province’s only direct economic immigration program for bringing in new British Columbians. It provides a pathway to permanent residence for highly-skilled, in-demand workers and experienced entrepreneurs, so they can settle in BC and raise a family. The BC Provincial Nominee Program offers three ways to become a permanent resident in BC. Each pathway has different categories and eligibility criteria. These criteria are based on the candidate’s qualifications, experience, income, work experience, skills or international student status
