Immigration program

Candidates invited by four provinces for PNP draws held from September 24 till 29

This week candidates have received invitations to apply by the provinces of Ontario, Immigration program, Quebec, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia through provincial immigration programs.

The (PNP) Provincial Nomination Program of each province is operated by that particular province with Quebec and Nunavut being the only exceptions and candidates who are interested to apply for provincial nominations can be invited to apply using this immigration program.

O the other hand the province of Quebec administers its own immigration programs. They are also distinct from Canada’s immigration programs.

1,009 skilled workers were invited by Quebec on 15th September to apply for permanent selection. The province held a targeted draw for candidates with work experience in in-demand occupations while having a valid job offer outside the territory of the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal.

It is also a requirement for Candidates to have profiles in the Arima Expression of Interest system with a minimum score of 563 points.

With the holding of the current draw, Quebec has now held a total of eleven draws in 2022, two of which were in September which is a bit unusual since Quebec only holds one draw each month and releases the result between one or two weeks following the draw.

The invitations were issued to immigration candidates applying under the (QSWP) Quebec Regular Skilled Worker Program and the candidates who were invited by Quebec to apply for permanent selection have to submit their application and pay processing fees within 60 days. This time period will start when all the required information such as forms and documents has been received.


Over the past week, the (OINP) Ontario Provincial Nominee Program has held two draws, the first being on September 23 which was for the French Speaking Skilled Workers stream. For this draw, 363 candidates with a minimum score of 326 were invited by the province.

The program is aligned with Express Entry and to be eligible for this program candidates must be French-speaking with strong English abilities.

The second draw was part of the targeted draw for the tech occupation in which 1,179 invitations were issued by the province on September 28 using the ONIP. All the candidates also had job experience in specific tech-related occupations.

British Columbia

The province issued invitations to over 258 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination in British Columbia on September 28.

Among the candidates, a majority of them, 215, were invited through a targeted draw for tech occupations. The candidates who were in the Skilled Worker and International Graduates categories along with some Express Entry candidates were the ones to receive the invitations.

Moreover the Candidates who were invited to the target tech draw were evaluated through their SIRS score which works similarly to the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) but is unique to British Columbia’s PNPs and the minimum SIRS score of the candidates was 100.

There were also rounds of invitations held for candidates working in the following occupations by the province.

  • 28 early childhood educators and assistants (NOC 4214) with scores of at least 60 points; and

  • 15 Healthcare workers from the Skilled Worker, International Graduate, Entry Level, and Semi-Skilled (includes EEBC option) with scores of at least 60 points

  • Healthcare assistants from the Entry Level and Semi-Skilled category with minimum scores of 60 and;

  • Other priority occupations with minimum scores of 60

Moreover, British Columbia recently announced that it will be pausing draws under the BC PNP from October 12 till November 16 due to the new NOC system of 2021 being implemented which is an updated method of assessing a candidate’s skill level in economic immigration programs.


Saskatchewan has invited a total of 1,146 candidates out of which 639 candidates were from the Express Entry stream, and the remaining 507 were from the Occupations-In-Demand stream, of the (SINP) Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program.
