BRITISH COLUMBIA PROVINCIAL
Every province in Canada has designed specific immigration programs to target its own economic and demographic needs. These programs are referred to as Provincial Nomination Programs because the province can nominate specific individuals to be given permanent residency by the federal government.

The province of BC has several programs that appeal to different kinds of foreign nationals. When an applicant feels that he has the basic requirements for one of the programs, he submits his profile to the BC PNP registration portal and receives a points’ score. The points depend on various factors such as education, language levels, previous years of work experience, wage, and more.
