British Columbia Conducts New BCPNP Draws Across Multiple Streams

In its ongoing efforts to attract and retain skilled workers across various sectors, the Government of British Columbia has held new rounds of invitations under the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP). On May 28, 2024, the province issued Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to skilled candidates in multiple streams, including the general draw and targeted draws for healthcare, childcare, construction, and veterinary care occupations.

In the general draw, British Columbia invited 35 candidates who met the program’s eligibility criteria, with the minimum score for invited candidates being 110 points. This draw aims to address the province’s overall labor market needs by attracting skilled workers from diverse backgrounds.

Recognizing the critical role of early childhood educators, the province issued 11 ITAs to candidates under the childcare-targeted draw for those with experience in the National Occupational Classification (NOC) code 42202.

The healthcare sector, which has been facing staffing challenges, also received attention in this round of invitations. British Columbia invited nine candidates who scored 100 points or higher in the Healthcare-targeted draw, reflecting the province’s commitment to addressing labor shortages in this vital sector.
