British Columbia Provincial Nominee Programs

The economic growth of British Columbia depends on the availability of qualified and skilled people to meet the demands of the labor market. The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Programs (BCPNP) offers an incredible opportunity for experienced entrepreneurs and foreign workers and for gaining permanent residency in British Columbia.

Who Can Apply?

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Programs provide three different ways to foreign workers or immigrants to obtain Canada Immigration Visa and become a permanent resident in British Columbia. You can qualify for these categories based on your skill level, type of job, or international student status.

The categories include:

  • Skills Immigration
  • Express Entry British Columbia
  • Entrepreneur Immigration

Types of Program & Minimum Requirements

Skills Immigration

This is for semi-skilled and skilled workers that provide services that are in high demand in British Columbia. A points-based invitation system is used for this. You are required to register and apply online for the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Programs. You will also be required to apply for permanent residency using paper.

Furthermore, there are categories that do not require prior work experience. Based on the position you are being offered, no work experience is required for recent international graduates of any Canadian college or university. However, applicants for the semi-skilled and entry-level categories require British Columbia work experience. Contact us today at Patel Canada Visa to get started.

Express Entry BC

This offers a very fast and systematized way for eligible skilled workers to immigrate to British Columbia. Although, qualifying for a federal economic immigration program is very important. The Express Entry BC pathway also makes use of a points-based invitation system.

The registration and application process for both the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Programs and permanent residency process is completely online. Work experience in BC is not a basic requirement. Nevertheless, it is important that you possess relevant work experience outside of BC, and other language and educational requirements. Contact us today at Patel Canada Visa to get started.

Entrepreneur Immigration

This stream is for wealthy businesspersons and investors who have what it takes to actively manage or invest in a valid business in the economy of British Columbia. Just like the other pathways, this is also a points-based system. However, it is important that you possess the needed personal and investment funds.

For companies or businesses that would like to invest, expand or bring in key employees into British Columbia, get in touch with us today at Patel Canada Visa. We have what it takes to help fast-track the entire process.

Other Immigration Options

In case you do not qualify for any of the aforementioned British Columbia Provincial Nominee Programs streams, there are still other ways to enter British Columbia. Contact us today to know more about your other options.

Processing Times for the Program

This indicates the length of time it will take for your British Columbia Provincial Nominee Programs application to be processed. The processing time usually starts from the submission date of the complete application.

However, depending on the capacity of the program, processing times usually vary. Skills immigration and Express Entry BC often take between 2 to 3 months. For the Entrepreneur Immigration program, it usually takes up to 6 weeks before you are notified of your registration score. You will be notified of the application decision after 4 months.
