British Columbia is once again delighting immigration candidates
As always, once a week the province issues invitations to immigrate.
On March 14, British Columbia held a targeted draw for candidates for the provincial immigration program. This time, participants with in-demand occupations were invited.
The province selected 235 individuals from the following streams:
- Skilled Worker (including those registered with Express Entry);
- International Graduate (including those registered with Express Entry).
The invitations were distributed as follows:
- tech workers — 197 invitations;
- early childhood educators and assistants — 23 invitations;
- healthcare professionals — 10 invitations;
- veterinarians and veterinary technicians — less than 5 invitations.
Technicians were required to score 83 points in the evaluation system, and the rest of the professions were required to score 60. The minimum scores were unchanged from previous draws. The drawing was held on February 28 for technicians, and on March 7 for others.
B.C. awards points for work experience, education, language skills, the employer's location in the province, and the wage offered. It is required that you have a job offer in B.C.
