Ontario and British Columbia welcome individuals seeking nominations in the most recent PNP draws.

This week's Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws have invited applicants to two Canadian provinces.

The federal and provincial/territorial governments of Canada share responsibility for immigration. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) allot a certain number of nominations through the PNP to each province and territory (except Quebec and Nunavut) to choose economic immigrants who are most compatible with the local labor force and economy.

An over-nomination from a province does not equate to permanent residency. However, applicants who successfully seek provincial nomination will have an enhanced application when they submit an IRCC application to become permanent residents.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominees Program (OINP) extended invitations to 402 applicants over the course of two days this week. On June 17, the first two drawings were held. 84 applicants were invited by one employer to the Employer Job Offer: International Student stream.

Candidates for assistants and early childhood instructors were specifically targeted by it. For consideration, a score of sixty or above was necessary. 106 early childhood educators and assistants from the Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker Stream were likewise the focus of the day's second draw. To be eligible for an ITA, these individuals had to score 39 or above.

Ultimately, 212 individuals from the OINP French-speaking Skilled Worker pool were called to a draw on June 20. Since the draw was generic, applicants with scores between 305 and 409 were taken into consideration and no particular occupation was targeted.

British Columbia

More than seventy (70) individuals were asked to submit provincial nominations to the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP) on June 18. Those in the program's Skilled Worker and International Graduate Streams—including those with the Express Entry B.C. option—were invited.

Five targeted lotteries were organized by the province to find people for particular jobs.

  • The group of those working in technology received the most invitations—35. For consideration, they had to receive at least 122 points.

  • The province additionally welcomed 14 candidates in healthcare professions who scored at least 102.

  • A minimum score of 93 was required for the 11 invited applicants in construction and the 10 in childcare jobs.

  • Less than 5 applicants with a minimum score of 80 who worked in the veterinary care industry were eventually admitted.
