British Columbia PNP Draw: 370 immigrants invited for provincial nomination

British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) invited 370 immigrant applicants to two provincial draws that took place on May 25.

British Columbia PNP has conducted two separate rounds of invitations under its PNP program since February. There were two provincial draws - general and second, targeting wholesale and retail managers as well as foodservice and restaurant managers. There are a large number of people registered in BC PNP's skills registration system for these two occupations, and the province seeks to balance the needs across all sectors of the provincial labor market.

British Columbia PNP invited candidates from its two immigration streams in this round of invitations - Skills Immigration (SI) and Express Entry BC (EEBC). To be more specific, invitations were issued to international graduates, skilled workers as well as semi-skilled and entry-level subcategories of EEBC and SI streams.

The minimum scores for this draw ranged from 76 to 94 points. A total of 323 candidates were invited.

The separate draw was also carried out in the SI and EEBC categories and targeted applicants whose profession falls under NOC 0621 or NOC 0631. The draw results in 47 invitations with the minimum score required to set at 111 points.

So far this year, BC has issued a total of 4,808 invitations through various BC PNP streams.

After you have submitted your provincial nomination to BC PNP, you will get your decision in approximately two to three months. If your application is successful, then you can submit your PR visa application to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) with your provincial nomination.

A provincial nomination is valid for six months after the date of confirmation. After getting a nomination, you will get an additional 600 CRS points and therefore guarantee an ITA in the next express entry draw.
