Are you a Canada immigration motivated aspirant, and interested in the Provincial Nominee Programme (PNP)? If yes, this news report is for you!
British Columbia has carried out its latest draw for the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Programme (BC PNP), which occurred on September 15, this year. The province sent invites to a combined total of 477 applicants, to present an application for immigration to the nation, via the popular and the extensively used programme. Over 50% of the Invitations to Apply (ITAs) were given to international graduates, even as the rest of the ITAs were offered to the trained, semi-trained and entry level labor force.
Every aspirant, who managed to obtain an ITA in the BC PNP draw, had formerly registered an account under the BC PNP Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS), which became effective formerly in 2016. The SIRS is basically a vibrant intake management structure that enables the province to prioritize applicants for provincial nomination. Since the same happens to be a points-based arrangement, aspirants get a total on the basis of the details they offer upon registration. The total will decide if an applicant obtains an ITA.
While some specific BC PNP streams that run under the SIRS are duly aligned with the Canada federal Express Entry immigration selection structure, the petitions submitted to some other streams are processed completely outside the Express Entry structure. These latter classes are together called as 'base' streams, as against the 'enhanced' classes that are duly aligned with the Express Entry system.
