The BC PNP program is operated by the government of British Columbia in congruence with the Federal Government. In the latest draw held on October 27, 2020, candidates were invited under the skilled immigration and express entry categories of BC PNP. The minimum scores of the lowest ranked candidate ranged between 75 and 94.

Well, there are certain NOC’s that have been excluded due to the wreaking havoc created by the Corona crisis; however, the government will soon include these NOC’s in the future draws. 63 less invitations were issued in the latest draw held on October 27, 2020 than the previous BC PNP draw held on October 13, 2020.

The province of British Columbia conducts draws on a weekly basis. The largest BC PNP draw was held on September 29, 2020, issuing 450 candidates. If any candidate wants to apply under the skilled Immigration and Express Entry Categories, having a profile in the BC PNP’s portal is a must. Moreover, registering under the SIRS (Skills Immigration Registration System) is equally important.

The Express Entry Candidates who got an invitation in the latest draw will be given an additional 600 points towards their Express Entry CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) scores. Well, have a look at the table mentioned below to gain a clear understanding of the latest draw.
