BC PNP has introduced an online application process and electronic payment system. All new Skills Immigration applications and Entrepreneur Immigration registrations must be submitted via BC PNP Online.
Health Care Professionals, Northeast Pilot Project and all Express Entry BC applications may now be submitted through BC PNP Online.
The BC PNP has reached the limit of 200 new Skills Immigration applications for 2015 and is not currently accepting applications in any other Skills Immigration categories.
The BC PNP continues to focus on processing applications from the inventory. Processing times for new applications will be based on operational capacity.
All applications submitted on or before March 31, 2015 will be assessed according the program criteria in place at the time of submission – BC PNP will not retroactively apply new criteria.

ENTREPRENEUR IMMIGRATION (FORMERLY BUSINESS IMMIGRATION):

A mandatory online Entrepreneur Registration system is now available to simplify the intake process and ensure timely processing for high-impact applications.
