British Columbia’s Provincial Nomination Program issued 274 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in a draw held on June 4, 2019.
Invitations went to Skills Immigration candidates in three categories: Skilled Worker, International Graduate, and Entry-Level or Semi-Skilled Worker.
The precise breakdown of invitations within these categories was not provided.
Foreign nationals who would like to be considered through either the Skills Immigration or EEBC streams must first register an online profile with the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) through the Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
SIRS is a points-based system used by the BC PNP to evaluate candidates based on factors like education, work experience and proficiency in English or French.
The minimum required SIRS scores varied from 75 for Skills Immigration: Entry Level or Semi-Skilled Worker to 105 for candidates in the EEBC: Skilled Worker category.
An indeterminate, full-time job offer with an employer in B.C. is required for most Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC immigration categories.
