British Columbia Invites 66 Candidates

On June 11, 2024, the province of British Columbia conducted a new round of invitations through the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP). This latest draw saw a total of 66 candidates from various streams receive invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.

The BC PNP is a crucial pathway for skilled workers, international graduates, and professionals in specific occupations to gain permanent residency in Canada through the province of British Columbia. The program aims to attract and retain talented individuals who can contribute to the province’s economic growth and address labor market needs.

Here are the details of the June 11, 2024, BC PNP draw:

The minimum score requirements indicate the minimum comprehensive ranking score needed for candidates to receive an invitation in their respective streams or occupations. These scores are based on factors such as education, work experience, language proficiency, and other human capital factors.

It’s important to note that the BC PNP draw is highly competitive, and the number of invitations issued is limited. Candidates who received an invitation in this round have 30 calendar days to submit a complete application for the provincial nomination.

Successful nominees through the BC PNP will be eligible to apply for permanent residence in Canada through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) category of Express Entry or the Provincial Nominee Class for non-Express Entry candidates.

The BC PNP serves as a valuable immigration pathway for skilled individuals seeking to establish themselves in the province of British Columbia. As the province continues to address labor market needs and support economic growth, these periodic draws play a crucial role in attracting and retaining top talent from around the world.

Prospective candidates are encouraged to closely monitor future BC PNP draw updates and ensure they meet the eligibility criteria for their desired stream or occupation. Seek professional guidance if needed, to increase their chances of receiving an invitation in subsequent draws.
