British Columbia invites 173 in the first draw of 2020

By  Editor
Updated July 25 2023

British Columbia in Canada conducted its very first draw of 2020 on 7th January. The British Columbia PNP invited 173 candidates for a provincial nomination for Canada PR. Invites were issued under the Express Entry and Skills Immigration streams. 

To apply under the Express Entry-British Columbia category, you must have a valid EOI in the Express Entry Pool. 

The Express Entry Program is the primary route for skilled immigrants to gain a Canadian Permanent Residency. Candidates who are successful in obtaining a provincial nomination can add 600 additional points to their CRS scores. The added points guarantee an invite for Canadian Permanent Residency in the subsequent draws. 

Skilled and semi-skilled candidates who have work experience in an occupation in demand in British Columbia can apply under the Skills Immigration stream. 

To be considered for a provincial nomination, both Express Entry and Skills Immigration candidates must register through British Columbia’s Skills Immigration Registration System. Eligible candidates receive a score based on factors like a job offer, location in British Columbia, salary, education, language skills etc. 

The minimum cut-off score in the 7th January draw was between 85 and 105. 

Here are the results of the 7th January draw: 

Date  Category  Minimum cut-off score  No. of invitations issued 
7th January 2020  EEBC-Skilled Worker  110  173 
SI-Skilled Worker  100 
EEBC-International Graduate  105 
SI-International Graduate  103 
SI-Entry Level & Semi-Skilled  85
