British Columbia has issued an extra 194 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for its British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program through two classes: Express Entry B.C. – International Graduate and Skills Immigration, Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled. The ITAs were issued to a scope of hopefuls on June 2. Both categories work under what is known as the BC PNP Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS), which came into operation not long ago. SIRS is a dynamic admission administration system that permits British Columbia to organize candidates for provincial nomination to the province.
As it is a point-system based, hopefuls get a score in light of the data they give upon registration. This score will figure out if a hopeful gets an Invitation to Apply for selection from BC PNP through the Skills Immigration and Express Entry B.C. streams.
Express Entry – International Graduate
A large portion of the ITAs issued in this round of solicitations (126 of the 194) was issued under the Express Entry B.C. international Graduate category. Curiously, qualification for this classification is not constrained to graduates from education institutions in British Columbia. In fact, worldwide graduates who have moved on from a Canadian college or university within the past two years might be qualified to apply under this class. Applicants must have a full-time perpetual qualifying job offer in a skilled occupation from a British Columbia employer.
As the Express Entry B.C. – International Graduate stream is an improved PNP stream, applicants who get an assignment declaration are granted 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System and will get an Invitation to Apply for Canadian permanent residency at a consequent draw from the pool.
Skills Immigration- Entry Level & Semi-Skilled
At the beginning of June, an aggregate of 68 ITAs was issued to competitors under the Skills Immigration – Entry Level and Semi-Skilled class. This was the first occasion when ITAs had been issued under this class since April 8 when 95 ITAs were issued. This is for those who are currently living and working in British Columbia in a qualified occupation within the tourism/hospitality, long-haul trucking, or food processing industries, or in an NOC aptitude level C or D occupation in the Northeast Development Region of the province.
Here are a few of the minimum requirements for entry level/semi-skilled Applicants:
- Be as of now employed in a full-time position, having been in that position for no less than nine successive months before applying.
- Keep up all day vocation all throughout the application procedure. Work led amid a project of study or with an Off-Campus Work Permit does not qualify.
- Demonstrate the capacity to meet minimum income prerequisites and pay for lodging and everyday costs in British Columbia
- Have completed a secondary education
- Submit language proficiency test results demonstrating a capability in English of at least “Benchmark 4” in all segments; reading, listening, speaking and writing.
