Up to 274 applicants get LAA. But who qualifies under the BC PNP EEBC category?

If you wish to get an LAA under the BC PNP EEBC category, then you must do the following:

  • Firstly, have an active profile in the Express Entry (EE) System.
  • Have applied to 1 of the EE sub-streams such as:
    • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
    • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
    • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
  • Also, meet Human Capital Factors:
    • Age
    • Education
    • Work Experience
    • Language Skills
  • Besides, applied under the BC PNP EEBC category.
  • Finally, match the BC PNP EOI draw cut-off.


Once you get a Letter of Advice to Apply (LAA), you must submit a complete and error-free application for a BC PNP provincial nomination certificate. The moment you get the same against your EE profile, you will get an extra 600 CRS score in the EE pool. As a result, your chances of getting invited to apply for a Canada PR visa in an EE draw go up majorly.

So, looking at the above prospects, it would be wise to apply via the PNP + PR pathway for a Canada PR visa. To know more Contact Us to Book a Consultation with an immigration counsellor today. You can also take our Free Assessment to see which immigration program you qualify to apply for.
