BC PNP two draws invite a total of 494 immigrants for a provincial nomination

British Columbia PNP has issued 494 invitations on two separate provincial draws that took place on February 16, 2021.


459 immigrants were invited in through BC PNPs Skills Immigration (SI) and Express Entry BC (EEBC). Specifically, invitations were sent to applicants from the skilled worker, international graduates, entry-level and semi-skilled subcategories of the SI and EEBC streams.


The minimum scores for this draw ranged from 85 to 104 points.


35 invitations were given to candidates who have work experience as retail and wholesale managers and restaurant and food service managers. The province said it did the random draw because both professions have a high number of registrants in BC PNP's skills registration system.


The province also announced that it would begin inviting applicants in the tourism, hospitality, retail, and personal services occupations it has excluded from recent draws.


BC PNP has held a total of nine provincial draws, with 1,308 invitations issued to date in 2021.


BC PNP is targeting skilled immigrants who have work experience that is in high demand in the province and want to reside in the province as permanent residents.
