British Columbia held another tech pilot draw in this month and issued 90 invitations to apply for the permanent residence on April 20, 2021. British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP) issued 90 invitations through the Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skills Immigration streams.
The EEBC stream is for the candidates with a valid profile in the federal Express Entry system which is Canada’s main pathway for skilled individuals who wish to move to Canada on permanent residence.
The SI (Skilled Immigration) stream is for skilled and semi-skilled workers whose occupations are in high demand in the province of BC.
Candidates were invited under the Skilled Worker, and International Graduate subcategories through the BC PNP Tech Pilot. Invited candidates are required to have job offers in an eligible tech occupation in order to receive the nomination. The minimum required score for candidates who received invitations in this draw was 80 in all categories.
BCPNP tech pilot is a fast-track immigration pathway for in-demand tech workers and international students. It operates through British Columbia’s existing provincial immigration streams. This pilot project includes the service for employers, weekly draws for tech workers, priority processing of applications, and flexibility in the length of job offers.
In order to apply for Skilled Immigration of Express Entry BC categories, candidates must first create a profile on BCPNP’s online portal Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS). It was introduced in 2016, which is a points-based system ranks the eligible candidates according to a score based on various factors such as education, work experience, proficiency in English and the type of job offer they have received.
In order to be considered eligible for this immigration program, candidates need to have a valid job offer of at least 12 months in one of the Tech Pilot’s 29 eligible occupations.
The highest-scoring candidates in each Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC category that uses SIRS are invited to apply for a provincial nomination through regular draws from their respective candidate pools.
Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories of the Express Entry BC are linked to the federal Express Entry system and allow the BC PNP to nominate skilled worker candidates with an Express Entry profile.
Express Entry candidates who receive a nomination from British Columbia will be given an additional 600 points toward their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation To Apply (ITA) in a future federal Express Entry draw
Had fantastic experience. My case officer was Dhara, she was very prompt and dedicated towards it. She was also thorough in the documents and resolve any queries within a day. Wish to have same support in future also.
I would like to thank you to the team and specially Ms. Norin for continuous attention on the file preparation. I am very satisfied with all services. I look forward to seeing great support from winny as always for further processes.
I have started with processing for Canadian PR with the Winny Immigrations. So as far my experience is quite good. My first meeting was set up with Amit Goswami. He is explained me the entire process in detail and answered to my each question. Call back and email feedback to resolve the issues is quite effective with him. I appreciate his support and I looking for the same support till the end of the process. Thank you so much.
I have had a wonderful career-changing experience with Winny. They have really good knowledge, experience and the right people to do the job. Ofcourse, there are many products and may/may not fit all people. But Winny does guide you very well with all information that is required to make the best call for yourself. Remember Winny is to guide you, help you for a career path. A Profile’s success & failure is on the Embassy and Candidate solely. There were a few hiccups in my profile from the embassy side, but it was handled PERFECTLY by the team Winny. That’s what makes it outstanding than all other immigration consultants. I have referred many of my friends and shall continue doing the same. Keep up the good work 💪 Winny!
My experience at Winny is nice. They are very cooperative and giving their client proper suggestions and guidance. Even in pandemic, staff was making all the efforts to function normally. They provide professional service and really extremely great advice. I appreciate the Winny team for their services. They are focusing on accuracy which is good part. Still my process is not completed but till now I am satisfied with the services. Definitely going to recommend to everyone.
