British Columbia has issued 476 new invitations to apply for a provincial nomination in draws that took place March 30, April 6 and 7.

The most recent draw held April 7, was conducted under the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)’s Tech Pilot, which assists the province's technology sector in its efforts to recruit talent through weekly draws.

Candidates selected in that draw were from Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories and needed a minimum provincial score of 85.

The April 6 draw invited 18 candidates through the BC PNP Entrepreneur Immigration stream.

The minimum score required for an invitation was 107.

In its March 30 draw, the BC PNP issued invitations to 311 skilled and semi-skilled workers and international graduates through its Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC streams.

The minimum score requirements were between 102 and 105 in that selection round.

Applicants who received an invitation to apply now have up to 30 calendar days from the date of invitation to submit a complete application via the BC PNP Online registration system. An invitation to apply does not guarantee that applicants will be approved for a nomination.

In order to be considered under the BC PNP, most candidates must have an indeterminate, full-time job offer from an employer in the province who is willing to support them through the application process.​
