BCPNP Issues New Invitations in Latest Draws Targeting Skilled Workers

On June 11, 2024, the Government of British Columbia conducted new invitation rounds under the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP), continuing its effort to attract skilled workers to the province. This latest round saw invitations issued to candidates in the general draw as well as those with work experience in healthcare, childcare, and construction occupations.

In the general draw, 39 candidates received invitations to apply, with a minimum score requirement of 110 points. This high threshold underscores the competitive nature of the BCPNP and the province’s commitment to inviting highly skilled individuals.

The province also targeted specific sectors in separate draws. In the childcare-targeted draw, aimed at early childhood educators (NOC 42202), six invitations to apply (ITAs) were issued. These candidates play a crucial role in supporting the province’s educational framework and addressing the growing demand for quality childcare services.

Additionally, the construction sector, vital to the province’s infrastructure development and housing projects, saw nine candidates receive ITAs. These individuals are essential to supporting the province’s robust growth and addressing the increasing demand for residential and commercial construction.

In total, British Columbia issued 66 ITAs in this latest draw. With these new invitations, the province has now invited up to 3,381 candidates in 2024, demonstrating its proactive approach in addressing labor market needs and supporting economic growth.

The BCPNP continues to be an important pathway for skilled workers seeking to make British Columbia their home. By targeting key sectors and maintaining rigorous selection criteria, the province aims to ensure that those who are invited can effectively contribute to its economy and communities.

Prospective applicants and interested parties are encouraged to stay informed about the BCPNP draws and requirements. Detailed information and updates can be found on the official BCPNP website.
