British Colum PNP Tech Pilot Draw-

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”.

Those invited can now proceed to applying to the BC PNP for being nominated by the province for their permanent residence in Canada.

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.
