The province of British Columbia issued invitations to new candidates during a new draw that was held on 6th April 2020. The candidates who were chosen in the draw organized by the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program had CRS scores of at least 107.
The BC PNP gave invitations to 18 candidates who were already registered under the Entrepreneur Immigration — Regional Pilot. For this draw, the minimum score requirement was 107, and it was the lowest score to be ever set for the stream since October 2019.
What does it mean?
The candidates who were chosen will now have an advantage. The Entrepreneur Immigration (EI) stream is perfect for experienced business professionals who want to settle down in Canada permanently. It is the ideal pathway for those who want to live in British Columbia while investing in and operating a commercially successful business. This will help boost the provincial economy significantly.
The 6th April draw was the fifth EI draw that was organized in 2020. So far, 62 invitations have been issued this year. All the entrepreneurs who want to move to the province are free to choose from any one of the following EI stream categories:
- The Entrepreneur Immigration — Base Category, which is ideal for experienced entrepreneurs looking to establish new businesses or expand preexisting businesses in the province
- The Entrepreneur Immigration — Regional Pilot, which wants to entice entrepreneurs into participating in regional communities so that new businesses that benefit the economic development of the area can emerge.
Foreign entrepreneurs are usually recommended to the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) by all the participating communities. The Entrepreneur Immigration — Regional Pilot came into existence back in 2019 so that communities would be able to actively participate in choosing entrepreneurs to invite.
