B.C issues 276 invitations in the latest PNP draw

British Columbia invited 276 Skills Immigration and Express Entry candidates in a draw conducted on June 16 to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residency. Invitations went to both the Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skills Immigration streams for Skilled Worker and International Graduate candidates.

The category Express Entry BC (EEBC) is for candidates with a valid profile in the Express Entry system of the federal government, and is Canada’s primary method for skilled immigrants seeking to gain permanent residency in Canada.

The Skills Immigration Category is designed for skilled and semi-skilled workers in the province of B.C whose occupations are in high demand.

The minimum score thresholds for the five EEBC and Skills Immigration (SI) categories that were included in today’s draw ranged between 80 to 103. The minimum scores were:

SI – Skilled Worker: 100

SI – International Graduate: 100

SI – Entry Level and Semi-Skilled: 80

EEBC – Skilled Worker: 100

EEBC – International Graduate: 103

In order to obtain an invitation via the EEBC, candidates, both the Federal Express Entry System and the Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) of B.C. must be registered.

Express Entry is the application management system managed by the federal government. Express Entry candidates are allocated points based on factors of human capital such as age, work experience, education and English or French language proficiency. Express Entry candidates receive an additional 600 points towards their Comprehensive Ranking System –CRS score with a provincial nomination.

Only skills Immigration candidates need to be registered with the SIRS.

So far in June, B.C held three draws, the latest being a Tech draw held on June 9. Tech Pilot draws are held weekly and as part of the registration process, candidates are awarded a score based on factors like education, work experience and language abilities.

Created in 2017, the Tech Pilot addresses labour demands that can not be met locally in British Columbia’s tech sector. Its aim is to ensure that B.C.’s tech sector has access to the talent it needs to keep growing. Under the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP), Tech Pilot candidates are exempted from permanent; full-time work offer requirement that extends to most immigration categories.

Nevertheless, Tech Pilot candidates must establish a job offer that has a period of at least one year with a minimum of 120 calendar days remaining at the time they apply for a provincial nomination.

British Columbia recently announced an extension of the Tech Pilot until June 2021.
