Candidates who are registered in the Express Entry BC categories are given an additional 600 points, which is added to their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) when their provincial nomination application is successful. The extra points effectively ensure that these candidates receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence.

The other candidates who received the invitations under the Skills Immigration categories will have their Canadian permanent residence applications processed by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) directly once British Columbia issues a provincial nomination.

If you are interested in immigrating to British Columbia via the BC PNP categories, you should create an online BC PNP online profile. Applicants belonging to the Entry Level and Semi-Skilled, Skilled Worker, and International Graduate categories will have to register to the province’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) to receive a score.
