How Can I Apply for BCPNP?
There are basically two ways you can apply for a BCPNP nomination. The first is through Express Entry while the second is through the official British Columbia PNP website. Here is how you need to apply through each.
Go to the CIC website and fill out the Express Entry profile creation form. You will need to provide details like age, language ability, educational qualifications, work experience, adaptability etc. Make sure the information you provide can be validated through the right documents. When creating the profile, you will be asked which Canadian province you want to move to. Mention British Columbia there. This will notify the BC immigration office of your application and start its processing. Once your profile is approved, it will be entered into the Express Entry job pool. Use this pool to find a suitable job for yourself and increase your immigration chances.
Go to the BCPNP website and follow the same process as in Express Entry. You will again need to provide personal details and documents for the same. Note that the BCPNP evaluation can take between 4 to 6 months. Since Canada is issuing many Invitations to Apply right now, applying as soon as possible is the best thing.

How Does Talent Connected Worldwide Maximize Canada Immigration Chances?
Talent Connected Worldwide has a very sophisticated working process which is the central pillar to our continued success. This process has been designed by Canada immigration veterans with thorough knowledge of the immigration system. Here is a step-wise process:
- The first step begins with an initial consult. Here, we ask the client for their relevant documents and an evaluation fee. This fee is refunded if we feel we cannot help the client immigrate after document evaluation.
- In the next step, we undertake a detailed evaluation of the client’s documents and create an accurate CRS score. This score allows us to determine how quickly the client can immigrate and how we can help them do that.
- After the evaluation, we have a detailed consultation session where we explain all relevant matters to the client. We also give them a well-defined immigration application plan which will maximize their immigration chances. If the client agrees, we create legal contracts and all parties sign them. Along with that, we also ask for the remainder of the consultation fee.
- Once the remaining fee has been given, we start our work. We create the Express Entry and BCPNP profiles and notify our clients on all activities relevant to their Canada immigration application. We also use our extensive Canada job market connections to secure a well-paying job for our clients. Mostly our clients get their PNP nomination within 5 months.
- When the Express Entry Draws are held, we inform our clients of their ITA or Invitation to Apply. Then, we help them apply for a Canada PR visa and once they get it, we help them secure all the right documents to finally help them immigrate officially.
