BC Skilled Worker application procedure

There is a framework in place for expressions of interest for the British Columbia Skilled Worker stream (EOI). Candidates can create a profile utilizing BC's online immigration portal provided they match the requirements for the basic stream. Candidates must specify on this BC profile whether they intend to use Express Entry or the standard Skills Immigration process when submitting their applications. Candidates will be evaluated and contrasted using the BC Skills Immigration Ranking System after the profile has been posted. When the stream has one of its regular intakes, the top candidates will be urged to apply.

Within 30 days of receiving the invitation to apply, candidates are required to submit a complete and final application for the program. Each applicant must pay $1150 CAD as part of the BC Skilled Worker stream application fee. BC will offer the applicant a provincial nomination for permanent residence if the application is accepted. In order to start working in Canada while their application for permanent residency is being processed, candidates may also ask for a letter of support for a temporary work visa.

The applicant had six months to submit a formal application for permanent residence if they specified on their BC profile that they were applying to the BC Skilled Worker stream through the traditional Skills Immigration process. A paper application must be completed and mailed to the authorized application center. Applications for permanent residency submitted on paper are typically processed in 18 months.
