The largest BC PNP draw of the year was on September 29 when 450 provincial nomination invitations were issued.
To apply for the Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC categories candidates must first create a profile through the BC PNP’s online portal and register under its Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
Applicants are evaluated and issued a score based on factors such as level of education, work experience, proficiency in English and location of employment.
If an applicant is approved, they can then use their provincial nomination to apply for permanent residence with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Express Entry candidates who receive a nomination from British Columbia will be given an additional 600 points toward their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.
Such individuals are effectively guaranteed an Invitation To Apply (ITA) in a future federal Express Entry draw.

To contain the spread of COVID-19, Canada has put a variety of special immigration measures in place since March 18, 2020.
However, Canada is exempting certain individuals from the travel restrictions so they can enter the country. Among these exemptions include some Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR) holders, work and study permit holders, and certain family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
In addition, Canada is still accepting new immigration applications and processing existing ones. Express Entry, PNP, and Quebec skilled worker draws have continued throughout the pandemic.
Many Canadian employers are actively seeking foreign skilled workers to join their workforce as quickly as possible. If you can obtain a job offer from a Canadian employer, you may also qualify for fast-track Canadian immigration application processing.
