Concerning the BC PNP

The BC PNP's objective is to recruit highly sought-after foreign workers who desire to immigrate to Canada as permanent residents.

The two main sub-streams of the BC PNP's immigration program are Express Entry and Skills Immigration. These streams are governed by the BC Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS). To apply via the SIRS, you must first create an account. Following that, you will receive a score based on your education, work experience, and language ability.

The best candidates from each subcategory are then urged to apply for a provincial nomination to seek permanent status when British Columbia has one of its routine draws.

If you were invited, you have 30 days from the invitation date to submit a complete application using the BC PNP online system.

After completing a thorough BC PNP application file, you will typically hear from the province within two to three months. If your nomination is approved, you can submit an application to Immigration, Refugee, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for permanent resident status under the Provincial Nominee Class.

The nomination is valid for around six months after confirmation.

If you are a provincial applicant and have a score high enough to be invited to apply (ITA) in a future federal Express Entry Draw, you may be qualified for an extra 600 points under the CRS.
