British Columbia has conducted its first draws since a comprehensive overhaul of the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program, issuing at least 328 invitations to apply.

The changes saw an overhaul of the scoring system for British Columbia’s Skills Immigration category.

The November 28 draws were split into two categories: general and targeted.

In the general draw, which included tech occupations, 253 invitations were issued through five BC PNP streams for skilled workers and international graduates. Minimum scores ranged from 82 to 105 points.

In the targeted draw, a further 49 invitations were issued to skilled workers and international graduates scoring at least 60 points in a draw targeting Early Childhood Educators and Assistants under NOC 42202.

A further set of ‘less than 5’ invitations went to entry level and semi-skilled workers targeted specifically at Healthcare Assistants under NOC 33102, with a minimum score of 60. The number of invitations was listed as ‘less than 5’ to protect the identity of those who were invited. 

The final set of ‘less than 5’ targeted invitations went to skilled workers and international graduates under NOCs 31103 and 32104 for veterinarians and animal health technologists and veterinary technicians respectively, with a minimum score of 60.
