BC Skills Immigration Stream

The economic growth of this Province depends on having enough skilled and qualified people to meet labour market needs. The BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is a pathway for high-demand foreign workers and experienced entrepreneurs to gain permanent residency in B.C.



  • Candidates for BC Skills Immigration must register through BC PNP Online, the web portal managing the Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
  • This online system manages the intake, ranking, and applications for BC PNP applications.
