BC

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) held its weekly round of invitations on April 12. More than 155 BC immigration candidates received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination.

A total of 124 of these candidates were invited through a BC Tech draw. Candidates invited through BC’s Tech draws must meet the requirements of one of British Columbia’s Express Entry BC and Skills immigration categories, which are managed through the Skills and Immigration Registration System (SIRS).

Candidates who received invitations in this draw were from the Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories and needed a minimum provincial score of 87.

The province also held three draws for candidates in targeted occupations. Twenty four early childhood educators who may qualify for the Skilled Worker and International Graduate sub-categories were invited. BC also invited seven healthcare professionals who may be eligible for the Skilled Worker, International Graduate, or the Entry Level and Semi-Skilled sub-categories. In both of these draws, candidates needed a minimum provincial score of 70.

In addition, less than five veterinarians and animal health technologists and veterinary technicians were invited to apply for Skilled Worker and International Graduate sub-category. These candidates needed scores of at least 63 in order to be invited.

Manitoba 

As a special immigration measure for citizens of Ukraine, the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) holds periodic draws to invite them to apply for provincial nomination.

This is to assist people affected by the Russian invasion of Ukraine to come and live in the province. The province has conducted three of these special invitation rounds since mid-March.

The most recent one took place on April 11 and saw 20 Letters of Advice to Apply (LAAs) issued with a minimum score requirement of 60 points.

To be eligible, candidates also had to have a minimum of CLB 4 in each language category, a valid language test and an established connection to Manitoba like a close relative, previous employment or studies in Manitoba.
