British Columbia PNP latest draw issues a large number of invitations

British Columbia PNP invites 379 immigrants in two latest provincial draws held on May 11 to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residents.

Since February, British Columbia has held two separate rounds of invitations every two weeks. Specifically, a general draw and a second draw were targeting retail and wholesale managers as well as restaurant and foodservice managers.

Candidates were invited from British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)s Skills Immigration (SI) and Express Entry BC (EEBC) subcategories - International graduates, skilled workers as well as semi-skilled and entry-level in the latest round of invitation. 

The minimum scores for this draw ranged from 77 to 94 points. A total of 331 candidates were invited.

The separate draw was also carried out in the SI and EEBC categories and targeted candidates whose profession falls under National Occupation Classification (NOC) Code 0621 or NOC 0631. 48 invitations were issued with a minimum score of 112.

After receiving an invitation, candidates will have 30 days to submit their complete application through British Columbia PNP's online portal.

Provincial immigration authorities will notify the candidate of the decision in approximately two to three months. If your application is successful, you become eligible to apply to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent resident status in the Provincial Nominee category.

The provincial nomination is valid for approximately six months from the date of confirmation.

As a Provincial Nominee, you may receive an additional 600 points under the CRS and therefore score high enough to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Federal Express Entry draw.

PNPs have continued to operate throughout the coronavirus pandemic, and there is no indication that their activities are slowing down in 2021. So far this year, British Columbia has issued a total of 4,356 invitations through its various feeds. PNP.
