On August 18, 2020,  the province of British Columbia, in the latest PNP draw, invited 302 invitations to the Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skilled Immigration Candidates (SI) i.e. 135 invitations lower than the previous draw held on August 7, 2020. You all might be aware that the Express Entry BC has been aligned with the Federal Express Entry System.

Through the Federal Express Entry System, the Federal Government manages the PR applications through the three economic immigration programs such as Federal Skilled Worker’s Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades program (FSTP) and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

The Express Entry Candidates who receive the provincial nomination from the province of British Columbia are awarded with 600 additional points, that makes certain that you can apply for the Canada’s Permanent Residence in the latest Express Entry Draw without any complications.

The minimum required points in the latest BC PNP draw was between 76 and 98, all depends upon the category that you’ve applied for.

The Minimum scores required by each category are:

DateNumber of
August 18, 2020 302 SI - Skilled Worker 96
SI - International Graduate 98
SI - Entry Level and Semi-Skilled 76
EEBC - Skilled Worker 96
EEBC - International Graduate 98

Well, if you’re interested in applying through the Express Entry BC stream, you must fulfil two conditions such as:

  • You must have an appealing Express Entry Profile and,
  • You must be registered under the Province’s Skilled Immigration Registration System (SIRS).

On the other hand, if you want to apply under the skilled immigration stream, you should only be registered under the SIRS (Skilled Immigration Registration System).
