The province of British Columbia has held its first draw of June 2021 under the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP] of Canada.
On June 1, 2021, a total of 68 Canada immigration hopefuls have been invited by British Columbia under BC PNP Tech draw.
|Recently made permanent, the erstwhile BC PNP Tech Pilot is now “BC PNP Tech”.|
Skilled workers that received invitations under the latest provincial draw by British Columbia were those eligible for either the Express Entry BC [EEBC] or Skills Immigration [SI] categories.
Fetching 600 CRS points – ranking score as per the Comprehensive Ranking System – for a federal Express Entry candidate, the BC PNP’s EEBC is aligned with the Express Entry system of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC].
The Skills Immigration or SI category of the BC PNP, on the other hand, runs independently.
