British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program Invites 237 Candidates to Apply for Nomination Saturday, May 9, 2020

On 7th May 2020, the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) extended invitations to apply for provincial nomination to 237 eligible candidates under several program sub-categories or ‘streams’. 11 of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories run PNPs to nominate foreign nationals, who can contribute to the provincial/territorial economy, to apply for permanent residence to the federal government authority – Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

While nominations are issued by the provincial/territorial authority, PR status is granted by IRCC. Canada immigration aspirants who wish to permanently live and work in British Columbia must register for the province’s PNP by meeting the requirements of a suitable stream. Eligibility of registrants under each stream is evaluated through a point allocation grid, wherein each candidate receives points based on relevant selection criteria.
