In the most recently conducted draws of British Columbia, 211 candidates got the opportunity to apply for PR. The Canadian province has been looking for workers to fulfill the labor shortages. 

Just like other provinces and territories of Canada, British Columbia is also searching for laborers and skilled workers to satisfy it’s workforce needs. The labor market of British Columbia is lacking in certain industries such as healthcare sector and technical sector.
