The Canadian province of British Columbia has distributed 476 new invitations among candidates who want to submit their application for a provincial nomination in the draws that were organized on 30th March, 6th, and 5th April. The province is doing a great job of keeping a regular flow of incoming immigrants even during the coronavirus restrictions. Having a nomination will give the candidates an edge when they participate in another draw.
The last draw was organized on 7th April, and it was conducted as a part of the Tech Pilot launched by the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program. This pilot is crucial because it provides valuable assistance to the province’s technology sector when it comes to recruiting new talent by holding weekly draws.
The candidates who were given the invitations during the draw belonged to subcategories like the Skilled Worker and the International Graduate. In order to qualify, they had to have a minimum provincial score of 85. The draw on 6th April witnessed the distribution of 18 invitations via the BC PNP Entrepreneur Immigration stream. The minimum score that was accepted for an invitation was just 107.
The draw that was held on 30th March witnessed the BC PNP issuing invitations via the Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC streams to 311 semi-skilled and skilled workers, and international graduates. That selection round had minimum score requirements between 102 and 105. The applicants who now have an invitation to apply will have to submit the needful by 30 calendar days, dating from when they received the invitation. They have to submit a complete application through the BC PNP Online registration system.
Most candidates produce an indeterminate, full-time job offer from a provincial employer in order to qualify for the BC PNP.
