Provincial immigration programs in Saskatchewan and British Columbia are unique among Canadian provincial immigration programs because applicants need job offer from employer in those provinces (even without LMIA) and if other criteria is met they can apply for provincial nomination and after that for permanent resident (PR) status in Canada.

In January of 2016 BC PNP re-opened practically all previously existing streams however they introduced several new rules.

Presently BC PNP resembles, in many respects, Express Entry program - potential applicants have to collect sellection points based on two groups of factors: 
  1. Economic Factors (Maximum of 120 is awarded) and
  2. Human Capital Factors (Maximum of 80 is awarded)
