The Canada Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is a set of Canadian immigration programs operated by the Government of Canada in partnership with individual provinces, each of which having its own requirements and ‘streams’ (i.e., target groups). In a program stream, provinces and territories may, for example, target: business people, students, skilled workers, or semi-skilled workers.

BC Provincial Nominee Program

The BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is an immigration program for British Columbia that gives “high-demand foreign workers and experienced entrepreneurs” the opportunity to become a permanent resident in BC. The BC PNP offers 2 pathways to obtain a permanent residence in BC, each containing different streams one can apply under, depending on their National Occupational Classification skill level, job, or international-student status:

Skills Immigration: This stream, primarily using a points-based invitation system, is for skilled and semi-skilled workers in high-demand occupations in BC. Candidates may not need prior work experience for some categories; however, Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled category applicants require B.C. work experience. Candidates may have work experience from abroad; and recent international graduates of a Canadian post-secondary institution may not need any work experience, depending on the job being offered.

BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) 

  • BC PNP Tech: Those in specific tech occupations may qualify for invitation at a lower points threshold and receive priority assignment for processing..
  • Express Entry: International Student and Skilled Worker candidates can select either the Express Entry or Standard version of the BC PNP streams.
  • Express Entry streams: offer shorter timelines for federal permanent residence application processing.
  • Priority Occupations: Since 2022, the BC PNP has also provided occupation specific invitations to apply at lower point thresholds based on specific occupations in education, healthcare and veterinary care.
  • Health Authority and International Post-Graduate Streams – Qualifying candidates, such as those with a job offer from a public health authority or those who’ve graduated from selected programs at BC post-secondary institutions, can apply directly to the program without registering, obtaining a score and being invited to apply.
  1. Entrepreneur Immigration: This stream, using a points-based invitation system, is for experienced entrepreneurs who wish to actively manage a business in BC. Applicants must create a minimum number of jobs, have the required personal net worth, and make a minimum level of eligible investment.
  • Entrepreneur Immigration – Regional Pilot: an option for entrepreneurs who wish to start a new business in participating regional communities across BC.
  • Entrepreneur Immigration – Base: an option for entrepreneurs who wish to acquire or start a new business in the province.
  • Strategic Projects: an option for international companies seeking to expand into BC, and who require permanent residency for key employees.
