2021 Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC draws to date

The pandemic continues to impact certain activities of businesses and industries in British Columbia. Therefore, some occupations were excluded from this draw. 

Create Your BC PNP Profile 

The first step interested candidates should take is to create a profile through the BC PNP’s online portal. Then Register under the Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).

Candidates are then evaluated and issued a score. The scores are based on factors such as level of education, work experience, English proficiency, job location, and salary.

Approved BC PNP Candidates

Approved candidates can use the nomination to apply for permanent residency in Canada with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Nomination Through EEBC 

Receiving nomination through EEBC gives an additional 600 points towards your CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score in the Express Entry profile.

In turn, it guarantees that you are bound to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in the next federal Express Entry draw.  

Both PNPs and Express Entry are the main pathways for skilled workers to immigrate to Canada.
