The aim BC PNP program is to attract those foreign workers who have high demand in B.C. and want permanent residency status in Canada.

The candidate will be required to register in the account if applying for SIRS. After completion of registration, candidates will get their scores assigned based on their education, work experience, and language proficiency.
If a candidate receives an invitation then the candidate will get 30 days extra from the invitation date. This timeline is given to submit a complete application through the online system of BC PNP. After the submission, the candidate will get notified about the decision of the province in about two or maybe three months. You will be eligible to apply to IRCC for permanent residency status from the Provincial Nominee Class if the candidate gets the nomination. This said nomination has a validation of approximately six months from the confirmation date. A candidate may receive additional 600 points to their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) if you are a provincial nominee.
