British Columbia PNP

British Columbia has been regularly issuing invitations to international candidates since the beginning of 2021 so that more immigrants can arrive in Canada. Last year, Canada suffered immigration losses because of the pandemic so the Canadian provinces are working extra hard this year.

Details of the draw

The province of British Columbia held two draws on March 2 and issued 444 invitations among immigration candidates. British Columbia has held a total of 11 invitation rounds this year.

Candidates belonging to the Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skills Immigration (SI) streams were selected in this draw. The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program or BC PNP targeted people from the International Graduate, Entry Level, and Semi-Skilled and Skilled Worker sub-categories. The province issued 418 invitations during this draw.

There was a second draw held on the same day during which 26 candidates were invited. Restaurant and foodservice manners as well as retail and wholesale trade managers received invitations in this separate draw. The required score was 118 for candidates to be selected.

Once these candidates submit an application for a provincial nomination, they will stand a chance to be nominated and win 600 CRS points.

What is EEBC?

The Express Entry British Columbia stream is directly associated with the federal Express Entry streams. Candidates who are registered under the Express Entry stream are usually evaluated on the basis of human capital factors like work experience, education, and language abilities. They should also fulfill the basic requirements of one of the Express Entry programs created by IRCC.
