On August 15, 2023, the Government of British Columbia released the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP) Statistical Report and Year in Review for 2022. The BCPNP has been producing an annual statistical report since 2017. The report has been expanded to include information about the program’s activities in 2022 and an overview of the BCPNP’s efforts to improve performance and combat fraud. The BCPNP selects a limited number of prospective immigrants for permanent residence in Canada. After receiving a provincial nomination from British Columbia, candidates must apply for permanent residence for themselves and their dependants through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
