As of 29 January 2020, applicants require the Canadian Language Benchmark Level of 4 in the English language or French language to qualify for the British Columbia Provincial Program's Entrepreneur Immigration stream.
The condition has to be reached at the nomination stage of the application process, indicating candidates come to the BC province with a work permit and have the opportunity to enhance their language skills.
The change is intended to make appellants to the program more possible to succeed in the economy of Canada.
Research reveals that ability in one of the Canadian official languages has a notable impact on the economy and social integration of newcomers into their new nation, a British Columbia's PNP statement said.
Meanwhile, British Columbia province has also moved to dismiss the key staff option beneath the Entrepreneur Immigration– Base Stream. As of 29 January 2020, key staff can no longer be added to applications.
This change will enable the principal candidate to be more involved in the day-to-day processes of the business, increasing the communication with suppliers & customers, which will assist in enhancing language skill,” a BC PNP statement announced.
The reforms are only for new applications. Those who have previously applied will be evaluated on the category criteria pre-January 29.
