What is Express Entry BC Stream?

The Express Entry BC (EEBC) Stream is a program that operates through a partnership between the Government of Canada’s Express Entry system and the province of British Columbia. This collaborative effort allows the province to identify potential candidates from the Express Entry pool who may be eligible for one of the EEBC streams. These streams, which are part of the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP), aim to attract skilled foreign workers, international graduates, and entrepreneurs to settle in British Columbia as permanent residents.
