Know Everything about British Columbia PNP Draw
The main aim of the British Columbia PNP program is to attract foreign workers who are already high in demand in the province & who want to obtain Canada PR. British Columbia PNP comes with two immigration streams as Express Entry & Skills Immigration. Both streams have already been divided into sub-categories. British Columbia’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) is managing these streams.
If any applicant wants to apply via SIRS, then it is the responsibility of every candidate to complete registration. After completing the registration, the officer analyses several things in your profile like work experience, level of education, & language skills. The outperforming applicants from every category are invited to apply for the provincial nomination to get permanent residency whenever British Columbia holds the draws. If any applicant is getting the invitation, then they have 30 days from the date you receive the invitation. Qualified candidates will have to submit the proper application via BC PNP online system.
If the nomination of the candidate is already successful, then you will surely be qualified to apply for Immigration, Refugee & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for the status of Canada PR under the program of Provincial Nominee Class. According to the provincial nominee program, every applicant gets an extra 600 points through CRS. Therefore, the candidate must have a higher score to receive the Invitation to Apply (ITA) during the frequent draws of Federal Express Entry.
According to the Canadian Government, only ICCRC authorized members can represent the file of your Canada PR. Therefore, beware of unauthorized agents attracting PR candidates through fake statements.
