Since the beginning of the year, B.C. has given over 10,000 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination through weekly draws.

On November 9, British Columbia hosted two Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws, which resulted in the invitation of 340 immigrants.

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) accepted candidates from the Skills Immigration (SI) and Express Entry BC (EEBC) streams based on the results of these two draws.

Those from the Skilled Worker, International Graduate, Entry Level, and Semi-Skilled sub-categories of the SI and EEBC streams got invitations.

The 287 applicants who were not invited for their occupation received the most of the invites. These candidates were invited if they satisfied the minimal score criteria, which ranged from 69 to 94 depending on the programme.

Candidates who worked in NOC 0621 (retail and wholesale trade managers) or NOC 0631 (restaurant and food service managers) were targeted in the other draw.  That draw generated 53 invites, all of which had minimum scores of 104.

As part of the PNP programme, British Columbia has been conducting a separate round of invites twice a month since February. Because of the large number of candidates from certain labour market sectors who registered with the province's Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS), these draws are being held.
