BC PNP Draw Issues 270 ITAs for skilled and Express Entry Candidates -22nd June, 2019

British Columbia extended invitations on June 18, 2019, to 270 immigration candidates firstly in its Skills Immigration and secondly in Express Entry BC streams. They can now seek the provincial nomination and also obtain PR in Canada.

Importance of the PNP

The Provincial Nominee Program of British Columbia permits the province in nominating workers as well as global graduates having requisite training and experience for ensuring the provincial economic growth.

The categories where the invitations were sent

Skilled Workers in Skills Immigration:

  • International Graduates
  • Entry level workers
  • Semi-Skilled workers

Invitations were also issued in Express Entry Skilled Workers and International Graduates categories

BC PNP has not specified the number of nominees in these categories but has provided the minimum scores necessary in the Skills Immigration Registration System for the draw. The scores were in the range of 75 to 105 for candidates.

SIRS points system is used by the PNP for evaluating candidates depending on factors, like English proficiency and work experience apart from others.

An indefinite, full-time job offer from a local and eligible employer is necessary for Skills Immigration as well as Express Entry immigration categories in British Columbia.


Moreover, these Express Entry candidates receiving the nomination from BC PNP also get 600 more points in the score of the federal Comprehensive Ranking System. This will be a guarantee to obtain the prestigious invitation to apply for PR in Canada in a succeeding Express Entry draw.

This PNP generally has a less score for entry and as a result many candidates prefer it to reach Canada. For the current year the allocation is 6,500 and the authorities are on the path to achieve it because of the popularity of the streams. Moreover there is a fast processing of the applications.
