Hi all! I am doing some research to help my brother immigrate to Canada. Some backstory: - He will receive a permanent job offer from an employer in BC by the end of this week - He is planning to apply for BC PNP to get the extra 600 points for the nomination - He is a web developer with 5+ years experience and his EE score is 69 Now so far, it looks pretty straightforward. But I have hit a dead end. For the BC PNP, he needs to choose which program he wants to apply to, EE-SW or SI-SW. In order to apply for Express Entry - Skilled worker with BC PNP, he needs to: "have received an Express Entry Profile Number and a Job Seeker Validation Code from the IRCC Express Entry system. This shows you meet the minimum criteria for one of IRCC’s Express Entry programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program Federal Skilled Trades Program Canadian Experience Class" Now, when he tries the "Come to Canada" tool and answers the questions there, at some point, after a certain question, the page says he is not eligible to apply for EE at this point. The question that prompts this answer is: "Are you currently working legally in Canada"? Since he is not working at the moment (will have a job offer soon), he answers NO to this question. And as I said before, the tool says he is not eligible for EE. He has tried to answer YES just to see what happens next, and sure enough, the page continues with other questions about family members in Canada, school credentials, etc. and at the end, it says he is eligible. Can someone explain why he is deemed ineligible if he doesn't currently work legally in Canada? I am at a loss, if you could please advise what can be done after he receives this job offer, I would really appreciate it.
