British Columbia (BC) conducted a new PNP draw on June 16, 2020. In the draw, 276 candidates were sent invites to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence. These candidates came from Express Entry and Skills Immigration streams.
The Express Entry BC sent invitations to candidates in International Graduate and Skilled Worker categories from Express Entry and Skills Immigration streams.
The EEBC considers candidates who have a profile with a valid profile in the federal Express Entry system. The Express Entry system is the main pathway for skilled immigrants who are trying to become permanent residents in Canada.
The Skills Immigration stream is meant for semi-skilled and skilled workers who work in those occupations that are in high demand in BC. These candidates are needed for work in Canada.
The minimum score requirements in this draw ranged between 80 and 103 for both streams.
The minimum scores required were as follows:
- EEBC – International Graduate: 103
- EEBC – Skilled Worker: 100
- SI – Entry Level & Semi-Skilled: 80
- SI – International Graduate: 100
- SI – Skilled Worker: 100
To receive an invitation via the EEBC, candidates have to be registered under both BC Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) and the federal Express Entry system.
Express Entry is Canada’s federal government’s system. It manages the processing of applications for Canada immigration. The candidates who submit their profiles in the Express Entry system are assigned points based on human capital factors. These are work experience, education, age, and language skills in English or French.
Upon receiving a provincial nomination, the Express Entry candidates will get 600 points added to their basic CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score.
Skills Immigration candidates had just to be registered with the SIRS.
