Effective September 1st, 2015, new applications will no longer be accepted for the majority of BC PNP Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC categories.

Skills Immigration– Application Intake

The Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is accepting a limited number of applications for in-demand jobs under the Skills Immigration stream effective November 10, 2015.

The BC PNP was redesigned in July this year to make a targeted shift towards attracting high-impact workers and entrepreneurs that align with B.C.'s labour market and economic development priorities. This intake is focussed specifically on attracting applicants who are in high-wage occupations and meet those priorities.

Application intake will be limited to 50 applications in the Skills Immigration stream.

Applications are invited for occupations that offer wages over $100,000 a year. Examples could include senior construction, transportation, manufacturing and engineering managers, industrial and electrical engineers, as well as specialized software developers or technology professionals.

The BC PNP continues to process applications already in the inventory. The addition of 50 applications will not impact the processing times of existing applications.

The Entrepreneur Immigration stream will continue to accept registrations for prospective applicants, up to a maximum of 200 per month.

As well, no changes have been made to the following categories and applications will continue to be accepted in:

Health Care Professional - Skills Immigration
Health Care Professional - Express Entry BC
Northeast Pilot Project

B.C. continues to work with the federal government to increase the allocation of provincial nominations for B.C. in 2016.

Economic growth in B.C. depends on people – on having the qualified workers and entrepreneurs we need to meet labour market and economic development demands and ensure the continued prosperity of our province. Immigration plays an important role in helping B.C. meet current and future labour market shortages.

The BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is an economic immigration program based on provincial priorities and selection criteria. It offers accelerated immigration for high-impact foreign workers and entrepreneurs who intend to live permanently in B.C., demonstrate the ability to become economically established and contribute significantly to the provincial economy.

The process

The BC PNP is an accelerated immigration pathway for individuals to obtain permanent resident status in Canada. The first step in the process is to register and/or apply to the BC PNP. If your application is approved by the BC PNP, you are a Provincial Nominee, and you and your dependent family members can apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for permanent resident visas in the Provincial Nominee Class.

The BC PNP offers options for immigrating to B.C.
