Vancouver, British Columbia

Under the Express Entry System, British Columbia is adding a new category in their Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) called Express Entry British Columbia. Nominee Applicants who meet all of the following requirements will receive priority processing of their PNP application, and permanent residence application once they are nominated:

  • Qualify for at least one of the federal economic immigration programs subject to CIC’s Express Entry system
  • Obtain a Express Entry Profile Number and, if applicable, a Job Bank Validation Code, and indicate their interest in immigrating to B.C.
  • Qualify under one of the PNP’s Express Entry British Columbia categories.

The PNP’s new Express Entry British Columbia stream will significantly reduce the application processing time for eligible skilled workers who are willing to live and work in British Columbia. This new stream also allows PNP to use CIC’s Express Entry system to meet B.C.’s specific labour market needs.

Streams under the Express Entry British Columbia including:

  • Express Entry British Columbia – Skilled Worker
    • Express Entry British Columbia – Health Care Professional
  • Express Entry British Columbia – International Graduate
  • Express Entry British Columbia – International Post Graduate
