How to apply in BCPNP?

The SIRS (Skills Immigration Registration System) is the new registration system launched by BCPNP, in January this year. It intends to process the nomination applications received from the BCPNP candidates. It is the EOI based system like Express Entry, which provides points to the applicants and subsequently launches intervallic draws to select the applicants with the best score. The key categories of SIRS system are as follows:

  • Skills Immigration – Skilled Worker
  • Skills Immigration – International Graduate
  • Express Entry B.C. – Skilled Worker
  • Express Entry B.C. – International Graduate
  • Skills Immigration – Northeast Pilot Project
  • Skills Immigration – Entry Level and Semi-Skilled

The Express Entry stream of B.C. permits the eligible candidates to prioritise both their BC PNP application and permanent residence application upon selection in the BCPNP. The express entry has this particular stream of BCPNP to select candidates for B.C.
