British Columbia has conducted a PNP draw that invited 76 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada PR. The draw was held on November 17, 2020.
BC PNP issued invitations via the EEBC and Skills Immigration streams. Candidates got invited under the sub-categories of:
- Skilled Worker
- International Graduate
The invitations were issued through the BC PNP Tech Pilot. The invited candidates must have job offers in an eligible tech job to get the nomination. 80 was the minimum score needed for successful candidates in all categories.
The BC PNP Tech Pilot draw is conducted on a weekly basis.

Applicants are evaluated and ranked based on factors like:
- Work experience
- Employment location
- English language proficiency
Upon approval, an applicant can use their provincial nomination to submit an application for permanent residence in Canada with IRCC. This will be done under PNP.
Express Entry candidates who get provincially nominated will get 600 points extra over their CRS scores. This can be used to advance to the front of the line when it comes to selecting candidates to be sent ITAs in a federal Express Entry draw.
