British Columbia welcomes 362 immigration candidates

On April 27, 2021., British Columbia held 2 PNP draws that invited 362 immigration candidates. One of the draws was a general draw. The other was aimed at restaurant and foodservice managers and wholesale and retail trade managers.

The candidates invited were from SI and EEBC streams of BC PNP. More precisely, the candidates were invited from the International Graduate, Skilled worker, and the Entry-level & Semi-skilled sub-categories of EEBC and SI streams.

The minimum scores required for candidates ranged from 78 to 95. In the first draw, 348 candidates were invited.

In another draw, 14 immigration candidates were invited. This draw was for candidates whose occupations were under NOC 0621 and NOC 0631 categories. The minimum score prescribed for them was 113.

About BC PNP

The aim of the British Columbia PNP draw is to rope in foreign workers with skills that are in high demand in the province. Foreign workers who are willing to get a Canada permanent resident visa can find their right job and immigration opportunity in British Columbia with BC PNP.

The 2 main streams for immigration in BC PNP are SI and EEBC, which are managed by BC’s SIRS. Immigration candidates must register an account with SIRS. The registered profile is then assigned a score based on factors such as work experience, education, and language skills.

Candidates who score the highest from each sub-category will receive an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination. This leads to the candidates applying for a Canada PR visa when BC conducts a regular immigration draw.
