British Columbia holds first Entrepreneur BC PNP draw of 2024

Jan 16, 2024: British Columbia holds first Entrepreneur BC PNP draw of 2024, and selects applicants from Regional Pilot and Base streams. In both the BC PNP Entrepreneur streams fewer than 5 applicants have a BC PNP invite. To qualify the applicants needed to match a minimum BC PNP EOI score:

  • Regional Pilot – Minimum EOI score requirement 135.
  • Base – Stream – Minimum EOI score requirement 116.


Who can qualify under the BC PNP Entrepreneur Immigration (EI) category?

EI Regional Pilot: Applicants who have a referral from a participating community get a PNP invite in EI draws.

EI Base stream: Applicants can get a PNP invite as per 1 of the following factors:

  • As per the EOI registration score.
  • The area where the candidate wishes to set up their business.
  • The size of the population where the business will be set.
  • Whether you are buying a business or setting up a new business.
  • If the business proposal aligns with priority business sectors.


So, if you meet the above BC PNP EI streams then you will get a PNP invite to apply for provincial nomination. Looking at the first Entrepreneur BC PNP draw, we see no major change in the selection of applicants.

However, as per the last Oct 24, 2023, draw we see a positive change in the minimum EOI score requirement. Where we see no change in the Base stream EOI score requirement and a rise in the Regional Pilot stream EOI score by 19 points.

Thus, if you wish to settle in Canada under the BC PNP EI category, then you must apply now. To do the same you must know which Canada PR visa program best suits your needs. Apply under the guidance of a CICC Licensed Canada Immigration Consultant.
