How do BC PNP EOI draws work?

Candidates that meet the requirements for BC’s Skilled WorkerInternational Graduate, or Entry Level and Semi-Skilled Worker pathways can submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the province. Once a candidate creates an EOI profile, they are ranked by the province’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) and given a “SIRS” score. The highest-ranking candidates will receive an invitation from BC to apply for nomination. After receiving an invitation, candidates have 30 days to prepare and submit their online application to the province. Nominated candidates are then invited to apply to the federal government for Permanent Residence.

When will the next BC PNP draw be held?

The BC PNP usually holds nominee draws every Tuesday evening. Each week, BC alternates between general draws and BC PNP Tech draws.

The next BC PNP draw is expected on March 15th, 2022, targeting BC PNP Tech candidates.
