The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) held another invitation round on October 14.
Total 417 PNP candidates received invites to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence in this draw.
Candidates were invited under the below given five immigration sub-categories of the Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skills Immigration (SI) streams.
- SI – Skilled Worker
- SI – International Graduate
- SI – Entry Level and Semi-Skilled
- EEBC – Skilled Worker
- EEBC – International Graduate
The minimum required score for applicants varied between 75 and 94 across all categories.
The Express Entry BC (EEBC) Category allows BCPNP to search & invite qualified candidates with a valid profile in the Federal Express Entry system – the most popular pathway for skilled immigrants to obtain Canadian permanent residence.
The Skills Immigration Category of BCPNP is designed for skilled and semi-skilled workers whose occupations are in high demand in the province.
In order to receive an invitation for provincial nomination through the EEBC, candidates need to be registered under both the federal Express Entry system and B.C.’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) whereas Skills Immigration candidates only have to be registered with the SIRS.
All invited candidates under the Skills Immigration and Express Entry categories had an indeterminate, full-time job offer with an employer in B.C.
Candidates invited under the EEBC: Skilled Worker and EEBC: International Graduate categories will automatically receive an additional 600 CRS points toward their comprehensive ranking system (CRS) scores, if their applications get approved by BCPNP. This effectively guaranties them an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Federal Express Entry Draw.
