February 18, 2016
Province of Canada British Columbia has launched a new point system for the immigration program of the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP).
The Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) will be used to determine the priority of candidates for the BC PNP program and to accelerate their stay in the province.
Moreover, the provincial government asked the federal government to increase the number of immigrants from the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program from 5500 to 9000.
It operates under the system of Expression of Interest / Invitation to Apply (Expression of Interest / Invitation to apply); corresponds to the labor market of British Columbia; immediately enter into force; prefers candidates who received a job offer from the provincial employer; It gives an advantage to people with experience in Canada; takes into account factors that are not given in other scoring systems, for example: skill level, salary level, job offer location, etc .; guarantees an invitation to apply for permanent residence to candidates with a certain number of points.
Minister Shirley Bond said that for the growth of the province's economy it is necessary to attract foreign highly qualified specialists. Candidates for the BC PNP program need a system that will speed up the immigration process.
The SIRS system gives candidates registration points that determine whether the candidates will receive an invitation. When registering with the SIRS system, the candidate receives points and falls into the pool of one of the selected categories. Registration is free and can stay in the pool for a maximum of 12 months. From time to time, candidates with high scores receive an invitation.
What categories of the provincial immigration program are included in the SIRS?
Registration in the SIRS is mandatory for certain categories of BC PNPs listed below:
Skills Immigration & ndash; Skilled Worker (Skilled Worker). Skills Immigration & ndash; International Graduate (A graduate of foreign universities). Skills Immigration & ndash; Entry Level and Semi-Skilled (Low-Qualified and Medium-Skilled Employees). Skills Immigration & ndash; Northeast Pilot Project (Northeast Pilot Project). Express Entry & ndash; Skilled Worker. Express Entry & ndash; International Graduate.
Candidates of the following categories do not need to register with SIRS and can immediately apply for BC PNP:
Skills Immigration - Health Care Professional. Skills Immigration & ndash; International Post-Graduate (graduate of a master's degree in foreign universities). Express Entry & ndash; Health Care Professional. Express Entry & ndash; International Post-Graduate.
How to determine points by SIRS?
The maximum number of points a candidate can get is & ndash; 200, 120 of them for economic factor, 80 for labor capital. In addition, the SIRS system gives scores for factors regarding the candidate's job offer, education, work experience. To calculate the scores, a group of IT specialists developed a SIRS calculator. After answering a few questions, the candidate can find out how much he will receive points if he registers. Persons who have received or exceeded the required number of points are guaranteed to receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence in the next sample.
The "Minus Express Entry" is that the candidates do not know what exact number of points they need to dial in order to successfully pass the next sample & raquo; , - prosecutor David Cohen stated. & laquo; With the new British Columbia system, candidates know what to aim for. It is planned that by 2022 in British Columbia there will be an increase in the number of jobs, which will lead to an increase in the population. The provincial government is taking steps to improve immigration programs. One example is the SIRS system, through which it is possible to obtain a job offer for midsize positions & raquo ;.
