Third largest BC PNP draw invites 452 immigrants for provincial nomination

British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) held its largest provincial draw of the year 2021, inviting 452 immigrants to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada PR Visa. 

Candidates were invited through BC PNP's two immigration streams: Skills Immigration (SI) and Express Entry (EEBC). To be more specific, immigrants were invited through these two immigration stream's sub-categories - Skilled Worker, International Graduate, and Entry Level and Semi-Skilled.

The minimum points required in the latest BC PNP provincial draw were between 79 and 95 points. 

Also, it was the fifth time that British Columbia PNP held a separate provincial draw for restaurant and foodservice managers (NOC Code 0631) and retail and wholesale trade managers (NOC Code 0621), inviting a total of 21 immigrants with a minimum score set at 113 points.

The province has now run 23 invitation rounds as part of its PNP, bringing the total number of invitations issued to date to 3,441 in 2021.

As a Provincial Nominee, you may receive an additional 600 points under the NEC and therefore score high enough to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Federal Express Entry draw. IRCC held an Express Entry draw yesterday and is expected to hold another this week.

PNPs continued to operate throughout the coronavirus pandemic. By 2021, the federal government is on track to meet its ambitious immigration targets of 80,000 newcomers through PNPs.
