The draw of 23rd August was a specific ‘tech-only’ draw. British Columbia started this new initiative in May 2017.

Interested individuals, who are eligible in all respects, can apply for Canadian immigration through specific categories associated with BC PNP. Five of these categories were also included in these draws. However, the applicants must seek successful entry into “Skills Immigration Registration System” (SIRS) pool.
Each candidate receives particular points score after getting their legitimate entry into the particular pool. This score depends on various factors such as education, work experience, civil status etc. The government of BC issued ITAs through periodic draws to those candidates who have scored highest ranking in the SIRS pool.
After obtaining ITAs, these candidates can apply through BC PNP provincial nomination program. The candidates will get additional 600 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System and an Invitation to Apply (ITA) during an upcoming draw, once they receive a BC PNP nomination certificate.

It is imperative to note that the ITA issued at the Federal Express Entry level is relatively different from those issued through BC PNP. Whereas, the applications of remaining invited candidates will come under the ambit of federal Express Entry system for their due processing.
