British Columbia invited 318 applicants in its recent BC PNP draw

On December 7, 2021, British Columbia issued a new set of invites. The British Columbia Nominee Program (BCPNP) welcomed 318 people to apply for provincial nomination through the Skills Immigration and Express Entry streams.

BC has staged a separate draw for individuals with work experience in NOC codes 0621 and 0631 once more. Since February 2021, these separate drawings have been undertaken to balance labour market requirements across industries. Future draw requirements may alter as a result of changing labour market demands.

Targeted BCPNP draw: 51 invitations

This targeted draw attracted individuals with experience in occupational codes 0621 (Retail and wholesale trade managers) and 0631 (Retail and wholesale trade managers) (Restaurant and food service managers). The minimum score criterion has not changed from the previous draw for these vocations in British Columbia.

Express Entry BC categories (EEBC) minimum SIRS score:

Skilled Worker - 103

International Graduate - 103

BC Skills Immigration categories minimum SIRS score:

Skilled Worker - 103

International Graduate - 103

General BCPNP draw - 267 invitations

The following BCPNP draw targeted all other NOC codes.

Express Entry BC categories (EEBC) minimum SIRS score:

Skilled Worker - 97

International Graduate - 83

BC Skills Immigration categories minimum SIRS score:

Skilled Worker - 100

International Graduate - 86

Entry-level and semi-skilled - 103

Get a Free Express Entry Assessment

To qualify for BCPNP Skills Immigration, you must have a work offer and the assistance of a BC business unless you are eligible for BC's International Post-Graduate category. However, for BC immigration, candidates may not be required to complete a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). The Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP) of British Columbia provides work permit support letters to successful nominees, which can be used in place of an LMIA.

Candidates who satisfy the qualifications for the Skilled Worker, International Graduate, Entry Level, and Semi-Skilled Worker paths in British Columbia can submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the province. When an applicant submits an EOI profile, the province's Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) ranks them and assigns them a "SIRS" score. Then, BC will send invitations to the top-ranking applicants to seek the nomination. Candidates have 30 days after getting an invitation to prepare and submit their online application to the province. Nominated people are then asked to apply for Permanent Residence with the federal government.
