PNP Draw Calculator for BC

The Skills Immigration Registration System oversees the vast majority of BC PNP programs (SIRS). British Columbia can select candidates for provincial nomination based on applicants' ratings thanks to the intake management system known as SIRS. Prior to applying, potential candidates must first build a profile with details about their job offer in British Columbia, professional background, language skills, and educational background. The BC government conducts periodic interval draws in which applicants who meet the cut-off threshold for their category are invited to apply for a provincial nominee program. The SIRS operates on an expression of interest/invitation to apply basis, with registered candidates assigned a score (out of 200).
