The province of British Columbia in Canada has held its latest round of invitations under the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP].
On May 11, 2021, British Columbia PNP, also referred to as BC PNP, issued a total of 379 invitations in the two separate draws held the same day.
Those invited can now proceed to applying for a provincial nomination through the BC PNP for their Canadian permanent residence.
This is the second round of invitations to be held by British Columbia this month. Previously, 84 invitations were issued in the May 4 BC PNP Tech Pilot draw.
The invitations to apply issued by the BC PNP went out to candidates under the categories of Skills Immigration [SI] and Express Entry BC [EEBC].
The minimum score taken into consideration in the BC PNP draws is that allotted following an assessment on the Skills Immigration Registration System [SIRS]. The SIRS score comes into play after successful registration of a profile with the BC PNP Online.
An online points-based application management system, SIRS helps BC in selecting in-demand workers for meeting the local labour requirements of the province.
