Canada hasn't slowed down the immigration proceedings. In the latest draw of British Columbia province, there were 87 candidates invited. With the latest draw, the total applicants invited by BC PNP has now reached 10,500.
The province of British Columbia conducted the latest provincial draw on November 16, 2021, in which 87 tech candidates were invited for provincial nomination. These immigrations were carried out in two prime categories - Express Entry British Columbia and Skills immigration. For the Express Entry BC category, the applicant must have a valid profile in the federal express entry system, and then the candidates are picked from the pool.
The Key Highlights
The skills immigration category of British Columbia is for skilled and semi-skilled workers whose occupations are in high demand. In both the categories, Express Entry BC category and Skills immigration, the candidates need to register using the Skills Immigration registration system (SIRS). It is a unique selection system of British Columbia in which the candidates need to register and share certain personal information regarding work experience, job details, and also education. The SIRS works on an Expression of Interest (EOI) basis, and the registered candidate's abilities are calculated out of a score of 200. Here, the candidates with the minimum required selection score is selected.
While BC PNP categories want the Job offer from a BC employer, but there are also certain categories where SIRS don’t require the applicants to have a job offer.
With this draw, the total number of invites by British Columbia this year has reached 10500 immigrations. With the High immigration target set for the year, it is expected that there will be many more such nominations in the coming years.
