Taking place on November 07, 2023, the most recent BC PNP draw witnessed the issuance of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to 190 candidates under the Skilled Worker and International Graduate streams. Prospective candidates required a minimum score of 60 to be considered eligible for participation in this invitation round.

During the month of October, BC PNP extended invitations to a total of 903 candidates for provincial nomination across five separate draws. Similar trends are anticipated to persist throughout November.
These consecutive draws serve as a testament to British Columbia’s unwavering commitment to prioritizing the selection of skilled workers and international graduates equipped with the necessary skills, qualifications, and potential to thrive in the province’s dynamic economy. With the BC PNP consistently conducting back-to-back record-breaking invitation rounds in 2023, now indeed represents an opportune moment to consider applying for a nomination.
It is imperative to recognize that the BC PNP remains a highly competitive program, and meeting the program’s eligibility criteria does not automatically guarantee nomination. Therefore, it is essential to make sure that your application is thoroughly prepared, including all necessary documentation, and that you present your qualifications and experiences in the most compelling manner.
