This week, invitations to apply for provincial immigration programs were sent out by Manitoba, British Columbia, and Quebec.

In response to their most recent Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws, Manitoba and British Columbia both sent out invitations and Expressions of Interest. PNPs are available in all provinces and territories to assist provincial governments in choosing economic immigrant applicants who are most likely to fit in well with the local labor.

Because immigration is a shared duty of the federal and provincial governments, the PNP is effective. Provinces receive a set number of nominations annually that they can use for candidates.

Those who are able to secure a nomination from their province will subsequently have a greater advantage when applying for permanent residence with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Quebec does not need a PNP since province has a separate arrangement with the federal government that provides it control over the selection of all economic immigrants rather than getting an allotment. Candidates in Quebec are invited to apply for a certificat de sélection du Québec (CSQ) in lieu of being nominated.

Provincial Visa Outcomes for June 1–June 7

British Columbia

This week, four distinct occupation-based draws for applicants in the Skilled Worker and International Graduate streams (including Express Entry BC) were held by British Columbia (B.C.), inviting 68 people to apply to the BCPNP. June 4 was the date of the draw.

Candidates in IT occupations received the most invitations—33. Additionally, they demanded the highest minimum score—122.

The outcomes of the final three draws were:

  • Jobs in healthcare: 13 invitations to applicants with at least a 100
  • Jobs in childcare: eight invitations to applicants who receive at least a 93
  • Jobs in construction: 14 invitations to applicants who score at least 93

This Thursday, Quebec released the results of a draw that took place on May 30. Usually, Quebec posts results after the fact.

The province invited 1441 people to apply for permanent selection if they:

  • had a level 7 oral proficiency (or higher) in French according to the Échelle québécoise des niveaux de compétence en français. (Québec scale of French proficiency levels for adult immigrants) or its equivalent;
  • had a score equal to or greater than 591 points.

Candidates were also considered if they had a valid job offer outside of the territory of the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal.


254 letters of advice were sent out by Manitoba on June 6th to applicants for the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). Candidates who declared a valid Express Entry profile number and job seeker validation code were awarded 35 of them.

Three distinct types of candidates received letters in a draw format.

With an 834 score, the province wrote to 134 skilled workers in Manitoba. For the 74 applicants in the International Education Stream (no minimum score), everything worked in the same way.

Ultimately, a Strategic Recruitment Initiative resulted in the issuance of 45 letters to applicants in the Skilled Workers Overseas Stream. A minimum score of 708 was necessary for these applicants.
