British Columbia held another invitation round on October 15, inviting 227 Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
Skills Immigration candidates were selected from the Skilled Worker, International Graduate, and Entry Level & Semi-Skilled categories. Express Entry BC (EEBC) candidates were drawn from the Skilled Worker category and the International Graduate categories.
Minimum scores for this draw ranged between 80 and 102.
EEBC categories are open to immigration candidates with a profile in the federal Express Entry system, which manages the pool of candidates for Canada’s three Federal High Skilled immigration programs—the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.
Express Entry candidates who apply for and receive a provincial nomination for permanent residence receive an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.
Candidates in the Skilled Worker, Entry Level and Semi-Skilled, and International Graduate categories are required to register with the BC PNP Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) after completing a profile with the BC PNP’s online system.
SIRS is a points-based system used by the BC PNP to evaluate candidates based on factors such as education, work experience and proficiency in English and French.
All invited Skills Immigration and Express Entry candidates must have an indeterminate, full-time job offer with an employer in B.C. The CanadaVisa Skills Immigration Registration System Calculator can help you determine how many points you may be awarded under the BC PNP’s SIRS.
