Latest BC PNP draw invited 142 candidates to apply for PR

Latest BC PNP draw invited 142 candidates to apply for PR

The latest BC PNP draw (British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) occurred on April 9 with 142 immigration candidates invited to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. Candidates for BC PNP points must first create a BC PNP Online profile and register for one of the immigration categories under either the Skills Immigration or Express Entry British Columbia (EEBC) Stream. 

Invitations to apply for BC provincial nomination went out to foreign nationals who registered with the BC PNP points-based application management system, also known as Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).  SIRS is a points-based system used by the BC PNP to evaluate candidates based on factors like education, work experience and proficiency in English or French.

The Express Entry BC categories are open to immigration candidates with a profile in the federal Express Entry system. The system manages the pool of candidates for three Federal High Skilled Canadian immigration programs — the Federal Skilled Worker ClassFederal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

Candidates who are successfully approved for a BC PNP nomination will receive an additional 600 points toward their federal Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. These additional BC PNP points enable them to rank high among top candidates in the federal pool of immigration candidates and obtain an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in a future draw.
