British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)
British Columbia is one of the most popular provinces of Canada. Created in 2001, the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) offers a fast-track immigration pathway to high-demand skilled foreign workers who wish to settle here.
The BC PNP has two immigration streams for immigrants who have the skills and experience needed to help with province’s economic recovery and growth – Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skills Immigration (SI).
The Express Entry BC (EEBC) stream allows the province to select and invite qualified immigration candidates from the Federal Express Entry pool and nominate them for permanent residence status in Canada.
The Skills Immigration (SI) Category of BCPNP is designed for skilled and semi-skilled workers whose occupations are in high demand in British Columbia. This stream is made up of five categories: Skilled Worker, Healthcare Professionals, International Graduate (IG), International Post-Graduate (IPG), and Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled (ELSS).
