Besides, in this draw, the applicants were selected from the Skills Immigration (S.I) and Express Entry BC (EEBC) stream of the BC PNP.
In case you received an ITA under the EEBC stream then it means you:
- Firstly, applied under the EEBC stream of BC PNP.

- Also, you meet the EE system’s Human Capital Factors such as:
- Language Skills
- Education Level

Besides, if you receive a nomination against your EE profile then you will receive an extra 600 CRS score. This increases your chances of receiving an ITA to apply for a Canada PR.
Looking at the current Canada immigration trends BC is the only province with consistent CRS score and an increasing application intake. Thus, it is the best time to apply to British Columbia for a Canadian permanent residence.
