British Columbia Issues 374 Invitations to PNP Candidates

British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program

British Columbia is one of the most popular Canadian provinces among immigrants who want to settle down in the country and establish their careers. The province held its most recent draws on August 3, 2021, and issued a total of 374 invitations to skilled candidates who will now be able to apply for a provincial nomination. Successful applicants will be eligible to receive 600 extra CRS points, which will help them gain a competitive edge over other candidates.

The two draws were held under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), and each of them targeted a different group of candidates. British Columbia began the practice of organizing two separate draws back in February in order to accommodate the restaurant and food service managers, and the retail and wholesale trade managers in the Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS). The province reports that there are many candidates with these two occupations and hence the need for a different draw. The general draw targets all candidates, and this helps British Columbia cater to all the industries in the provincial labor market.
