The BC PNP program helps British Columbia to get foreign workers to meet its labour market needs and grow its economy. So, if you have the skills BC needs then you can qualify to get a nomination. Firstly, to do the same you must apply to the BC PNP sub-stream you qualify for. Secondly, when BC holds its periodic draws, if you match the draw cut-off score then you can get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for a nomination. Thirdly, after the successful processing of your application, you will get a nomination certificate.

What is the BC PNP EEBC sub-stream?

All provinces and territories except Quebec and Nunavut take part in the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). This program was launched in 1998 to ensure all provinces and territories enjoy the benefits of immigration. Under this, the participating provinces and territories can choose to nominate foreign skilled workers as per their labour market and economic needs.

Over the years, the PNP has become the second largest and most popular Canadian immigration pathway after the Express Entry (EE) System.

There are two types of PNPs – Base and Enhanced PNPs. A base PNP refers to an applicant applying directly to the province/territory for nomination. And after getting a nomination can apply to IRCC for Canada PR. Whereas enhanced PNPs are the ones which are linked to the Express Entry (EE) System. As per this, applicants who have an active EE profile can get ITA by provinces/territories from the EE pool. After that, if they get a provincial nomination they will get an extra 600 CRS score in the EE pool.

As a result, their chances of getting an ITA for Canadian permanent residency increase.

Further, the BC PNP EEBC sub-stream is such a stream. As it links to the EE system. So, to get an ITA under this stream you must have:

  • An active EE profile.
  • Applied to one of the EEBC sub-streams such as:
    • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
    • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
    • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
