318 Immigration Candidates Invited in the Latest BC PNP Draw

“In the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws held on December 7, British Columbia invited 318 immigration candidates.”

Through the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP), the province staged two draws, inviting candidates from the Skills Immigration (SI) and Express Entry BC (EEBC) streams.

Those from the Skilled Worker, International Graduate, Entry Level, and Semi-Skilled sub-categories of the SI and EEBC streams received invitations.

A general draw was used to send the majority of the invites (267). These individuals were invited if they scored between 71 and 100 on the minimum score requirements for the program for which they were qualified.

Another draw targeted applicants with NOC 0621 (retail and wholesale trade managers) or NOC 0631 (retail and wholesale trade managers) as their occupation (restaurant and food service managers). That draw yielded 51 invitations, all of which had minimum scores of 103.

British Columbia has been conducting a separate round of invites twice a month as part of its PNP program since last February. Because of the large number of candidates from specific labour market sectors who have registered in the province’s Skills Immigration Registration System, these drawings are being held (SIRS).

B.C. has issued nearly 11,000 invitations through various BC PNP streams so far this year.

Under the Employer Job Offer category, these candidates may be eligible for one of three streams: Foreign Worker, International Student, or In-Demand Skills. Candidates who had applied for the Regional Immigration Pilot received some of the invitations.

Candidates recruited under the Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills stream have prior job experience in the following NOCs:

About the BC PNP

The BC PNP attempts to attract foreign employees who are in high demand in the province and want to settle in Canada permanently.

Skills Immigration and Express Entry are the two main immigration streams in the BC PNP, each of which is subdivided into sub-categories. The Skills Immigration Registration System in British Columbia manages these streams (SIRS). Before you can apply through the SIRS, you must first create an account. After that, you’ll be given a CRS score based on factors including your education, work experience, and language abilities.

When British Columbia conducts one of its regular draws, the top-scoring candidates from each sub-category are invited to apply for a provincial nomination to apply for permanent residency.

You have 30 days from the date of the invitation to submit a complete application using the BC PNP online system if you got an invitation.

Within two to three months of submitting a complete BC PNP application dossier, you will be notified of the province’s decision. If your nomination is accepted, you will be entitled to apply for permanent residence status under the Provincial Nominee Program with Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

From the date of confirmation, the nomination is valid for about six months.

You may obtain an additional 600 points as a provincial nominee under the CRS, allowing you to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) at a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.
