How does the BC PNP Operate?


The Canadian economy is significantly “supported & sustained” by the province of British Columbia. The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP), which is managed by the province, is one of the most sought-after Canada Immigration routes for hopeful immigrants from all over the world.

A straightforward route for potential immigrants who desire to study, work, invest, and settle in British Columbia is provided via the point-based BC PNP.


Currently, the BC PNP oversees two significant categories:

  • British Columbia Immigration Skills
  • Immigrant Entrepreneurs in British Columbia


Based on the points earned using the British Columbia PNP points calculator, candidates are ranked and evaluated. Based on variables including age, education, work experience, and language, points are allocated.
