BC PNP's latest draw invites 203 applicants in a targeted occupation draw on 13th February 2024.

The province of British Columbia welcomed 203 applicants to the most recent BC PNP draw. This was the sixth BC PNP draw of 2024, and it took place on February 13th, 2024.  To address the labour deficit, the draw was directed toward occupations like childcare, construction, healthcare, technology, and veterinary care. To draw in skilled labour, British Columbia launched the BC PNP economic pathway, which gives applicants for permanent residence in Canada a road to do so.

The invited applicants have thirty days to submit their nomination applications. The score for the BC PNP draws varied from 60 to 108. The candidates that were invited belonged to the EEBC, International Graduate, and Skilled Worker streams.
