BC PNP Issues 46 Invitations In Its Various Categories
British Columbia invited 46 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence in its Express Entry BC, Skills Immigration and Entrepreneur streams.
The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) Tech Pilot draw selected 34 candidates under the Express Entry BC and Skills Immigration categories.
The BC PNP Tech Pilot is a fast-track immigration pathway for in-demand tech workers and international students. It operates through B.C.’s existing provincial immigration streams.
Candidates need to have a valid job offer of at least 12 months in one of the Tech Pilot’s 29 eligible occupations in order to be considered eligible for this program.
To apply for the Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC categories candidates must first create a profile through the BC PNP’s online portal and register under its Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS). Applicants are evaluated and issued a score based on factors such as level of education, work experience, proficiency in English and location of employment.
Express Entry candidates who receive a nomination from British Columbia will be given an additional 600 points toward their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation To Apply (ITA) in a future federal Express Entry draw.
The BC PNP also issued 12 ITAs in a draw for its Entrepreneur Immigration stream. The minimum score requirement for this draw was between 123 and 125, depending on the category.
Under this stream, candidates are assessed based on factors such as business and/or work experience, personal net worth, adaptability, and their business proposal.
