The province of British Columbia is a part of the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP] of Canada. 417 immigration candidates have been invited from 5 categories in the latest draw by the BC PNP held on October 13, 2020.

Those invited can now apply for a provincial nomination through the BC PNP.

An Express Entry candidate successful in securing a nomination gets an additional 600 points towards their Comprehensive Ranking System [CRS] score. Hence, a provincial nomination is a guarantee of the nominee being invited to apply for Canada PR in the next federal Express Entry draw to be held.

The previous draw by the BC PNP draw – a Tech Pilot draw – was held on October 6, 2020.

In the latest draw, a total of 471 invitations were issued to candidates through the BC PNP streams of Express Entry BC [EEBC] and Skills Immigration [SI]. Generally, the specific number of invitations issued in each of the individual categories is not disclosed by the BC PNP.

The minimum score required varied across the categories. By the minimum score is implied the score allotted to an immigration candidate on the successful submission of their profile to the BC PNP’s online portal by registering with the Skills Immigration Registration System [SIRS].
