British Columbia Issues 374 Invitations in The New Draw

On March 30, 2021, the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) issued 374 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) under the Skills Immigration (SIBC) and Express Entry (EEBC) categories to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence. These streams are intended for workers or international graduates with the skills, education and/or experience required for high-demand occupations in B.C.

There was also a separate draw conducted for retail and wholesale trade managers (NOC 0621) and restaurant and food service managers (NOC 0631), where 44 out of 374 invitations were issued to candidates with scores of at least 113.

The minimum scores requirements for these categories have been explained in the table below:

To apply for the EEBC or SIBC candidates must first create a profile through the BC PNP’s online portal and register under its Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS). Registration is free.

Applicants are evaluated and issued a score based on factors such as level of education, work experience, proficiency in English and location of employment.

Express Entry candidates who receive a nomination from British Columbia will be given an additional 600 points toward their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and are effectively guaranteed an ITA in a future federal Express Entry draw.
