The latest draw held by British Columbia sent invitations to new immigration candidates via EEBC and SI streams on December 15, 2020.
EEBC stream is meant for candidates with a valid profile in the federal Express Entry system. Express Entry system lays out a major pathway for skilled immigrants to arrive in Canada and get Canada PR.
The SI stream is meant for semi-skilled and skilled workers who are into occupations that are in high demand in British Columbia.
The candidates chosen in both streams required a minimum provincial score of 80. They came from the categories of:
- SI – Skilled Worker
- EEBC – Skilled Worker
- SI – International Graduate
- EEBC – International Graduate
To find the best-skilled workers from overseas willing to work in Canada, British Columbia conducts the Tech Pilot draw. It assists the province’s employers in attracting potential immigrants who include tech workers and international students.
Eligible candidates are sent weekly Tech Pilot invitations with a job offer valid for a year and belong to the list of 29 occupations that British Columbia PNP considers. The job offer must have a minimum of 120 days left at the time of application.
When the candidate gets a provincial nomination, he/she gets 600 extra CRS scores.That will give him/herhigher priority when it comes to being chosen for an ITA in an upcoming federal Express Entry draw.
To be considered for a BC PNP draw such as this one, candidates must first create a profile via the BC PNP online portal. The candidate must thus register himself/herself under the BC PNP’s SIRS.
