Immigration to Canada is possible through express entry draws and also through various Provincial Nominee Programs(PNPs). On 4th August the province of British Columbia (BC) has issued 602 ITA’s to the candidates interested in migrating to Canada visa BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP). These ITA’s were issued under three categories of Express Entry BC- skilled worker, international graduate and skills immigration –entry level and semi - skilled.
The BC PNP Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) is responsible for the BC’s ITAs, which was commenced this year itself. This is dynamic intake management system which allows the BC to select the candidates for provincial nomination. This is like express entry point based system, where the applicants get the score on the basis of the information they provide during their registration which form the basis of determining whether the applicant would get the ITA or not. For determining their scores, the candidates could use the exclusive SIRS Calculator under the system.
The minimum score required to receive ITA in BC PNP- Skilled Worker Category, in the latest draw of August 4, was the lowest score of any draw till now.
BC PNP is comprised of two broad categories and they are ‘base’ and ‘enhanced’ categories. Under base categories the application made are not aligned with federal Express Entry System, whereas the applications made to enhanced categories are processed under Express Entry System. If a candidate’s application is successful under the ‘enhanced’ BC PNP category than that candidate would receive an additional 600 CRS points and an ITA from the express entry draw.
