The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) ranks and selects individuals from its pool of applications using a points-based system. The Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS), also known as the BC PNP points calculator works similarly to the CRS calculator
Several factors, including your education, work experience, language ability, age, and other eligibility requirements established by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada, determine whether you can obtain permanent residence in British Columbia.
