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:
