British Columbia Organizes New PNP Draws

British Columbia has rapidly become a favorite for immigrants who want access to great opportunities. The province regularly organizes draws to issue invitations to skilled, eligible candidates who will be able to contribute to the economy significantly. 

The most recent draw was held by the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) on August 31, 2021. In recent British Columbia PNP draw a total of 488 immigration candidates belonging to four Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws were invited. This is in accordance with the trend of holding two different invitation rounds under the PNP program every month that British Columbia has been following since February.

The first one is a general draw, while the second draw is specifically meant for restaurant and foodservice managers and retail and wholesale retail managers. The BC PNP wants to invite international workers with the ideal skill set for the provincial labor market.
