British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program

British Columbia PNP is a popular Canada immigration pathway targeted at migrants intending to take up permanent residence in Canada and settle in British Columbia.

British Columbia is much sought-after among immigrants as BC has a history of high economic growth and relies on immigration to meet the labor market requirements.

The BC PNP provides a pathway for Canadian permanent residence for highly skilled workers, in-demand workers, and entrepreneurs. The BC PNP is operated by the provincial government in collaboration with the federal department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Every province and territory part of Canadian PNP gets a limited number of nominations each year.

BC immigration pathways:

  • Skills Immigration
  • Express Entry BC
  • Entrepreneur Immigration

Each category has its individual streams.

Process

Applicants to the BC PNP must follow a two-stage process — they must first apply for a nomination to the provincial government; and if they are nominated, they must next apply for permanent residence to the federal government.
