The PNP in British Columbia

The BC PNP makes an effort to draw in foreign workers who wish to settle permanently in Canada and are in high demand in the province.

 The BC PNP has two main immigration streams: Express Entry and Skills Immigration, both of which have sub-streams. These streams are managed by British Columbia's Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS). You must first register for an account with the SIRS before you can apply. Then you'll receive a score based on factors like your education, work history, and language abilities.

The top-scoring applicants from each subcategory are requested to submit an application for a provincial nomination to apply for Canadian permanent residency when British Columbia conducts one of its routine draws.

You have 30 days from the date of the invitation to finish and submit a thorough application via the BC PNP online system.

Within two to three months of filing a complete BC PNP application, you will be notified of the province's decision. If your nomination is approved, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada will let you apply for permanent residence under the Provincial Nominee Class (IRCC).

The nomination is good for around six months after confirmation.

You can accrue an additional 600 points under the CRS as a provincial nominee, which will enable you to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a future federal Express Entry draw.
