Express Entry comes to British Columbia
The province of British Columbia has developed its own subcategory of Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s express entry system. It will allow the province to select candidates that will satisfy the economic needs of British Columbia while also offering individuals the chance to immigrate to Canada without a job offer.
The province will nominate candidates who qualify under one of four subcategories, namely: skilled worker, health care professional, graduate student, or post-graduate student while also being eligible for at least one federal immigration program. Further, interested applicants must indicate their preference of relocating to British Columbia in their express entry profile in order to be considered for a provincial nomination. Those selected are then invited to apply for permanent residence and will have their applications managed more efficiently as the express entry program seeks to process files at a faster pace through its electronic platform.
