What is the Comprehensive Ranking System?

The Comprehensive Ranking System is the ranking mode that the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada uses to select candidates for permanent admission into Canada. Known to be very competitive, it ranks candidates according to the points that have been awarded, with candidates with higher points making it to the next step. The selected candidates are then issued with ITAs or Invitations to Apply.

The applications of the Skills Immigration candidates who receive these mentioned nominations will be processed differently from those made to the federal Express Entry system.

How foreign nationals can apply via BC PNP

People from other countries who would love to gain permanent residence status using the Skills Immigration or EEBC options will be required to register an online profile with the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program, which is also known as the BC PNP, followed by registration at the Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).

The Skills Immigration Registration System

The Skills Immigration Registration System is the system the BC PNP uses to evaluate candidates who have applied for permanent residence. Points are awarded to the candidates based on criteria like their education, work, experience and their ability to speak English or French, just like the Comprehensive Ranking System does.

Full-time job merits

The other thing that impacts a candidate’s eligibility is a job. Those who have applied under the Skills Immigration and Express Entry British Columbia categories and already have full-time in job offers in British Columbia have the upper hand and have a better chance than those who don’t. It is advisable to seek an approved offer of employment.
