Based on NOC skill level job or international student status, British Columbia PNP (BCPNP) offers three ways for foreign nationals to become permanent residents in BC.
Skills immigration – this category uses a points-based system, which requires the applicants to be de-skilled or semi-skilled workers in an in-demand occupation in BC. The applicants need to have a job offer from an employer in BC.
International students – recent graduates from a recognized college or university can apply under this stream. The pre-requisite of work experience depends on the job.
Entry-level and semi-skilled workers living and working in BC can also apply under this category.
Foreign nationals with experience in Health care occupations like a nurse, the physician can also apply.
Express Entry BC
This category expedites the migration of eligible skilled workers to BC. While BCPNP does not ask for work experience in British Columbia, but it does ask for the applicant to qualify for Federal Economic Immigration Program while meeting the requirements in the field of education and language.
