British Columbia holds weekly draw
Province continues to hold weekly PNP draws, the only province in Canada to do so
The province of British Columbia held its weekly Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw on June 7, 2022.
The results of the draw were released several days later.
During this round of invitations, over 141 immigration candidates were issued invitations by the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP), this was slightly less than the number of invitations issued during the May 31, 2022 draw.
Candidates were selected from the Skilled Worker, International Graduate and Entry Level and Semi-Skilled subcategories. Depending on the stream they were selected under, candidates needed a provincial score between 60 and 85.
In addition to holding the regular draw, B.C. has also been holding additional draws targeting specific occupations designed to meet shortages in the labor market.
The draw results are as follows:
- 125 invitations issued to candidates in tech occupations – provincial score required: 85
- 16 invitations issued to candidates in early childhood educators – provincial score required: 60
- less than 5 invitations issued to candidates in healthcare occupations – provincial score required: 60
Selected candidates can now apply for a provincial nomination. If they are successful, they will receive 600 extra points on their base Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. The boost will help them get selected by IRCC for permanent residency.
