Within the BC PNP Skills Immigration stream, nominees come from one of five categories. These include: Healthcare Professional, International Graduate, International Post-Graduate, Entry Level and Semi-Skilled, and Skilled Worker.
The BC PNP allows British Columbia to select immigrants who can contribute to the province’s labour market and economic development. B.C. then nominates these applicants to the federal government for permanent residency. Permanent residency is a pathway for Canadian citizenship.
