British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) invited 232 workers and international graduates through Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws held on Junuary 11th, 2022.
BC PNP’s most recent draw issued invitations under all five pathways under the Skills Immigration and Express Entry streams,
SI – Skilled Worker
SI – International Graduate
SI – Entry Level and Semi-Skilled
EEBC – International Graduate
EEBC Skilled Worker
The majority of invitations, 201, were sent by lottery. These candidates received invitations if they met the minimum score requirements between 78 and 110 depending on the program for which they were eligible.
Another draw targeted candidates whose occupation falls under NOC 0621 (retail and wholesale trade managers) or NOC 0631 (restaurant and food service managers). This draw resulted in 31 invites with minimum scores of 110 across all areas.
Since last February, British Columbia has held a series of separate invitations twice a month as part of its PCP program. These draws are being held due to the high number of applicants from particular labor market sectors who are registered with the province’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
