Categories of British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program:
Skills Immigration: It is referred to skilled and semi-skilled individuals who are having their occupations listed in the in-demand occupation list of British Columbia.
Express Entry BC: The category is for candidates who are placed in the Express Entry pool by having an Express entry profile. Invitations are issued for skilled candidates who are meeting the eligibility categories and planning to reside in British Columbia.
The Entrepreneur category is allotted for candidates with a plan to manage and invest for business in B.C. This is also a pathway to obtain a Permanent Residency in the British Columbia province. British Columbia’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) is the administration managing the BC PNP’s categories.
