The Provincial Nominee Program is a pathway to permanent residence in Canada that is offered by many different provinces and territories in Canada. Each province and territory has different requirements and streams for how you can apply under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program

Are you eligible for the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program?

1. Strategic Occupations Stream: If you have a job offer from a British Columbia and the employer cannot find a Canadian to fill it, you could be eligible under this program. However, the job must be in a certain type of job, such as a health care professional, a skilled worker or a semi-skilled worker.

2. Business Immigrants Stream: The Business Immigrants Stream allows immigrants who can establish or purchase and expand a business in British Columbia the opportunity to apply under the Provincial Nominee Program. There are three different subcategories of this category, each with their own requirements.

The Business Skills Category requires that you have a net worth of over $800,000 and can invest half of that in the eligible business. There are also other Business Skills Categories:

The Strategic Project Category requires that you make an investment of at least $500,000 and create at least three jobs for Canadians.

The Regional Business Category requires that you make a minimum investment of $200,000 and have a minimum net worth of $400,000. 

All of the businesses must contribute to the economy of British Columbia.
