British Columbia Draw Once Again Targets Certain Occupations

British Columbia Draw Once Again Targets Certain Occupations

In the most recent British Columbia draw, the occupations seen in the previous draws are once again targeted. More than 225 candidates receive invitations to apply for Canada permanent residency through Express Entry. 

If you want to work in British Columbia, you would first need a visa to enter Canada since Canada is not one of the visa free countries for India so you can submit your application in the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program. If you receive an invitation in these draws, then it would increase your CRS score and hence your chances of getting an invitation from Express Entry draws increases. After receiving an invitation from Express Entry, you can then apply for permanent residency and may even get Canada PR!
