British Columbia Temporary Pause on New Application Intake

BC Provincial Nominee Program has announced that, effective immediately, BC PNP is temporarily pausing new application intake in Business Immigration Stream and Skills Immigration Categories for 90 days. The PNP will redesign a new streamlined application process and program criteria during this break, and will reopen to new applications in July 2015.

These categories  are NOT impacted by this announcement

PNP will continue to accept applications under the following categories only:

  • all Express Entry British Columbia categories including:
    • Express Entry British Columbia – Skilled Worker
      • Express Entry British Columbia – Health Care Professional
    • Express Entry British Columbia – International Graduates
    • Express Entry British Columbia – International Post Graduates
  • Skills Immigration:

Applications submitted to the PNP on or before March 31, 2015, will not be impacted. BC PNP office will continue to process PNP applications already in the system and bring on additional staff to improve processing times.
