So far this year, British Columbia has issued more than 1,100 invitations to apply for provincial nomination.

British Columbia invited 140 tech workers to apply for a provincial nomination on February 15.

The invitations were issued through the BC PNP Tech, which is a stream under the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP).

British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program categories are managed under a unique system, known as the Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).

Under the SIRS, potential applicants are first required to register a profile and provide some personal information relating to their job offer in BC, work experience, language ability, and level of education. The SIRS works on an Expression of Interest / Invitation to Apply basis, whereby registered candidates are assigned a score (out of 200), and the BC government conducts periodic draws in which candidates who meet the cut-off threshold for their category in that draw are invited to apply for a provincial nomination.

Some British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program categories are aligned with Canada’s federal Express Entry immigration selection system. Successful applicants under one of these categories obtain 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points and an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence at a subsequent draw from the pool.
