Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) grant Canadian provinces and territories the ability to nominate eligible individuals to become Permanent Residents of Canada. The British Columbia Skilled and Semi-Skilled PNP immigration programs were designed as a potential pathway for workers and international graduates who possess the skills, education and/or experience needed by employers in B.C. Generally speaking, the PNP programs exist with a goal of attracting individuals who are committed to live and work in a specific province, and ultimately become permanent residents of Canada. As Mansouri Firm’s offices are located in beautiful British Columbia, we have a lot of experience with the BC PNP in particular.


PNPs can be excellent options, but the application process can be complex. There are many steps to take, multiple streams to understand, and specific program requirements that must be met throughout the process including at the registration, application, and nomination stages. Let us help you! Our team will make sure that we understand your situation, and we can then make sure that you understand the options available to you, and the process involved.


British Columbia is one of the most attractive and popular destination provinces in Canada, so there is incredible interest in the BC PNP. There are also yearly limits on the number of nominations extended in each province, and British Columbia is no exception. This combination of factors means that the competition over nominations for the BC PNP is particularly high. However, if you are an eligible candidate for this program, you would not want to delay or diminish your chances of coming to Canada’s westernmost province because of things like errors in your application forms or missed deadlines. Mansouri Firm has the experience with the BC PNP to ensure that these will not be issues in YOUR case.


An offer of employment or a degree completed in British Columbia are baseline requirements for applying to the British Columbia Nominee Program, but there are many additional requirements too. We can answer your questions, and if this program could be an option for you, our team will help you navigate the application process. You may have questions like:

  • Will my employment history will meet the qualifications?
  • Does the educational program I completed qualify under the graduate stream?
  • Is this program suitable for my family?

You may have any number of questions. Mansouri Firm are the experts and we can answer all of these for you, and more.


To be eligible for the BC PNP, you must:

  • have accepted a full-time, permanent job in B.C. employer
  • have been working full-time for your employer for at least nine consecutive months (with proper authorization) before applying
  • meet minimum language and education requirements
  • meet the qualifications of your job
  • prove that you can support yourself, as well as any dependents should you be travelling with your family
  • have legal immigration status in Canada
