British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)
The BC PNP hold periodic invitation rounds, where eligible applicants are invited to apply for provincial nomination for Canadian PR visa. The BC PNP has two key streams: the Skills Immigration Stream and the Entrepreneur Immigration Stream. Each stream has dissimilar categories and subcategories, and applicants must meet the eligibility criteria of the category they apply under.
During an invitation round, the BC PNP issues ITAs to the top-scoring candidates in each category. The minimum score needed to get an ITA (Invitation to Apply) varies based on the category and the number of applicants in the pool.
If applicant gets an ITA, s/he will have 30 days to submit a complete application for provincial nomination. If the application is approved, the applicant can then apply for Canadian Permanent Resident (PR) Visa through the federal government.
