Dear future neighbour,

On July 9, the latest BC PNP draw issued over 66 invitations to apply for permanent residency. These invitations were sent out in both general and targeted rounds.

British Columbia has been holding these weekly draws consistently. There have been no interruptions in this regular schedule.

Since the start of its participation in immigration news, B.C. has maintained an unbroken streak of weekly draws. This consistent effort reflects the province’s commitment to its immigration program.

Additionally, 12 invitations were sent to profiles with experience in 39 healthcare-related occupations. Furthermore, 10 invitations went to those with experience as early childhood educators’ assistants or instructors (NOC 42202).

9 applicants with experience in 25 construction-related occupations were also invited as part of British Columbia’s new category-based draw, introduced in late 2023.

The provincial government has revealed the following details for this program:

Master’s Stream
– For recent graduates with Master’s degrees from eligible institutions

Doctorate Stream
– Designed for graduates and PhD candidates from eligible institutions

See below the general eligibility for BCPNP International Graduate Streams:

Candidates must:

Dear future neighbour,

British Columbia has permanently integrated the Entrepreneur Regional Pilot Program into its Provincial Nominee Program, now called the Entrepreneur Immigration Regional Stream, offering newcomers a new option to start businesses and settle in the province.

Entrepreneur Immigration Programs in British Columbia

Entrepreneur immigration programs in the BC PNP offer international entrepreneurs a pathway to start businesses and settle in B.C., focusing on innovation and economic growth. Initially, accepted applicants receive temporary status, transitioning to permanent residence once their business is established.

EI Regional Stream Overview and Eligibility

The EI Regional Stream targets entrepreneurs aiming to start businesses in small communities to boost regional development. Communities identify priority business types, and candidates must visit and engage with these communities early on.

Application Process for the EI Regional Stream

Entrepreneurs must secure a community referral to register and apply under the EI Regional Stream, ensuring alignment with local business priorities and facilitating their settlement and business initiation in the community.

To be eligible for the program, entrepreneurs must:

– Start a new business that matches the community’s priorities
– Show business or management experience
– Have a personal net worth over $300,000 CAD
– Invest at least $100,000 CAD in the business
– Create at least one full-time job for a Canadian citizen or PR
– Have at least CLB level 4 language proficiency
