387 INVITED IN 2 BC PNP IMMIGRATION DRAWS
July 06, 2021
So far this year, B.C. has invited 6,169 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination
British Columbia invited 387 immigration candidates in two Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws held on July 6.
B.C. has been conducting two separate rounds of invitations under its PNP program since February. The province holds a general draw and a second draw targeting retail and wholesale trade managers as well as restaurant and foodservice managers. According to information released by the province, this second draw is due to a high number of people registered in the BC PNP Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) with these two occupations. By holding these additional draws, the province aims to balance the needs in all sectors of the provincial labour market.
Candidates from the Skills Immigration (SI) and Express Entry BC (EEBC) streams of the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) received invitations.
More specifically, invitations were issued to those from the Skilled Worker, International Graduate as well as Entry Level and Semi-Skilled sub-categories of SI and EEBC streams.
In the first draw, the minimum scores ranged between 75 and 92 points. A total of 342 candidates were invited.
The separate draw was also conducted under SI and EEBC categories and targeted candidates whose occupation falls under NOC 0621 or NOC 0631. The draw resulted in 45 invitations with scores of 108.
The BC PNP aims to attract foreign workers who are in high demand in the province and who wish to become permanent residents of Canada.
The 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 have a score high enough to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) during a subsequent federal Express Entry draw.
