During the pandemic, British Columbia sent out separate invitations for these two jobs twice a month. These separate drawings are being held due to the significant number of candidates from specific labour market sectors who have registered in the province's Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).

To attract professionals from all over the world, the British Provincial Candidate Program was formed. Skilled immigration and Express Entry are the two well-known streams of the BC PNP.

The pattern of the BC PNP is well-defined. To get started, you must first create an account and complete all of the essential fields. Calculate the focuses by taking into account a range of factors such as age, work experience, and teaching skill, among others.

Before applying to the BC PNP for a Canada migration, you must first apply to Immigration, Refugees, Citizenship, and Immigration Canada (IRCC). Instead of deliberating, fill out Aptech Visa's free online evaluation form.
