PNP Nominations Issued Last Week By British Columbia and Prince Edward Island

The British Columbia (BC) and Prince Edward Island (PEI) issued provincial immigration invitations through their respective Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) last week. These programs are fundamental in selecting skilled immigrants across Canada, excluding Nunavut and Quebec, to address local labor market needs.

British Columbia

In British Columbia, multiple draws were conducted last week through the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP). 

In the initial draw, 39 invitations were issued across five streams, including Skilled Worker, Skilled Worker – Express Entry British Columbia (EEBC) option, International Graduate, International Graduate – EEBC option, and Entry Level and Semi-Skilled. 

The minimum score required varied among these streams. Candidates needed at least 132 points, except for the Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled candidates, who needed a minimum score of 107.

Four more draws were also conducted, focusing on candidates from the Skilled Worker and International Graduate streams and covering various occupational categories. Notably, candidates from childcare, construction, healthcare, and veterinary care occupations received invitations, with scores ranging from 80 to 97 points.

Prince Edward Island

On April 18, the PEI Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) issued 82 invitations to candidates. These invitations were extended to individuals working in high-demand employment sectors, such as healthcare, manufacturing, construction, and traditional industries.

The PNPs play a critical role in addressing labor market challenges and demographic needs across different Canadian provinces and territories. By selecting skilled immigrants through these programs, local governments aim to bolster their workforce and contribute to regional economic growth and development.
