In a fairly important development-- from the perspectives of the Canadian province of British Columbia (BC)--it has witnessed a minor augmentation in the general yearly nomination allocation for its British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP), with the number heading north from 5,800 from an early allotment of 5,500 for the year.
Sometime back in 2016, the BC administration reportedly sought a major boost in the volume of the immigrants who can arrive in the province, via the BCPNP from the federal administration. The modest boost is not as significant as what was requested.
But it still makes the BCPNP the largest Provincial Nominee Programme (PNP) in the country (by yearly allotment), in the process, leaving behind both the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Programme (OINP) and the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Programme (AINP). These two made public total allocation figures of 5,500 in May 2016.
It has been a rather demanding some months for the BCPNP. During the month of January, the province started an energetic intake management arrangement that enables the province to prioritize aspirants for provincial nomination.
What’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS)? It’s basically a points-based arrangement whereby applicants obtain a score on the basis of the facts they offer upon registration. This total will decide if an aspirant gets an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for nomination from the BCPNP, through the classes of Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC.
During the month of July 2015, a compulsory online registration structure was launched for every potential aspirant to the BCPNP Entrepreneur Immigration category. Not more than 200 registrations can be admitted every month, even while the BC PNP will, once in a while, send invites to the highest-scoring candidates to put forward petitions.
