Default difference between federal skilled worker and BC PNP

Hi all,

I'm looking to move with my partner to BC. I have lived there before on an IEC visa for two years, he's never been.

We both work as restaurant managers and so would be looking to apply through a skilled worker stream.

My question is; what's the difference between the BC PNP and the federal skilled worker categories? What's the advantage of going through the PNP as opposed to just applying as a skilled worker? The come to Canada wizard says that I'm eligible under the express entry scheme.

Thanks in advance

Sam

The obvious difference is that under the BC PNP you can only live/work in BC.
Under the IRCC skilled worker you can go anywhere except Quebec.

Info on the IRCC Federal Skilled Worker and criteria to be met is found in this link
Determine your eligibility – Federal skilled workers

Info on the BC PNP can be found here
https://www.welcomebc.ca/Immigrate-to-B-C

The EE portion of the BC PNP requires you must have accepted a job

IRCC requires no job offer.

Thanks FL. Just to clarify, when it says your skilled work experience must be 'in the same job' does that mean for the same employer or in the same position regardless of employer?

Hi,
Do you have any relevant qualifications in management?
Reason I ask is that my stepdaughter is assistant manager at a Harvesters restaurant. She has worked her way up and been on a number of courses but hasn't been to University or college.
Just wondering if she got to become manager with a couple of years behind her, would emigrating to Canada be an option?

Being a manager or assistant manager makes no difference in terms of immigration eligibility - both are classed as 'skilled' jobs so the job itself makes no difference.

If she's young enough, then her best bet is to go over on an IEC, and impress the he'll out of her employer so they'll want to keep her and help her apply for PR.

HTH.
