In its latest draw held on 26th March, the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program issued 242 invitations. These invitations were issued to candidates in the Express Entry and Skills Immigration BC streams.

The BC Express Entry Stream nominates candidates who have an active profile in the Federal EE Pool. Nominated candidates receive an additional 600 points on their CRS scores.

Below are the categories available under the Skills Immigration Stream:

  • Skilled Worker
  • International Graduate
  • Entry Level and Semi-Skilled

The Skills Immigration Stream is not aligned with the Express Entry system.

Candidates who are nominated under the Skills Immigration Stream need to submit their applications for Permanent Residence to IRCC.

All invited candidates had to first complete their registration on the BC PNP SIRS (Skills Immigration Registration System). These candidates are then given their registration score.

SIRS is a point-based system which is used to evaluate registered candidates. Candidates are evaluated on the basis of their education, work experience, and language proficiency skills.

Candidates who received an invitation on 26th March will need to provide evidence of having a full-time job offer in British Columbia.

23 invitations were also issued in the 26th March draw under the BC Entrepreneur Immigration Scheme, as per CIC News.

Here is a look at the 26th March draw:
