Changes to BC PNP Fees
自2020年8月6日起，卑诗省省提名计划（BC PNP）增加了技能移民（SI）申请和复审要求的费用。 技能移民申请的新费用为1,150美元（原为700美元），而申请复核的新费用为500美元（原为200美元）。请访问fees page，以了解BC PNP费用的明细。 BC PNP以成本回收模式运行，这意味着该程序的运营由该程序的用户而不是由纳税人支付。费用增加将使BC PNP可以继续有效地为申请人提供服务并提供帮助，直到他们获得永久居留权为止。 增加的费用还将使计划得以持续改进，包括维持或减少处理时间，提高计划效率，增强计划完整性并扩大与申请人的联系。 BC PNP费用与其他省份的移民计划相当。例如，安大略省在大多伦多地区收取2,000加元的申请费，在全省其他地区收取1,500加元的申请费。 卑诗省人民警察为国际工人和外国企业家提供了专门的移民途径，以为其自身及其家属申请永久居留权。它是卑诗省唯一的直接移民工具，通过吸引高需求职业中的熟练和半熟练工人以及国际企业家来建立企业，包括在劳动力市场紧张的地区，来帮助我们的经济增长。 在过去的十年中，该计划取得了长足的发展。自2009年以来，卑诗省每年从加拿大移民，难民和公民身份（IRCC）分配的PNP已从3,000项提名增加了一倍以上，至2019年达到6,750项。 该计划还帮助被提名人在等待永久居留期间提出与移民和就业相关的要求，近年来，这些要求增加了50％。目前，卑诗省有超过9,500名被提名人。等待成为永久居民。
Effective August 6, 2020, the BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) has increased the fees for Skills Immigration (SI) applications and requests for review submissions.
The new fee for the Skills Immigration application is $1,150 (increased from $700), and the new fee for a request for review is $500 (from $200). Please visit the fees page for a breakdown of the BC PNP fees.
The BC PNP operates on a cost-recovery model, which means that the program’s operations are paid for by the users of the program rather than by taxpayers. The fee increases will allow the BC PNP to continue to efficiently serve applicants and provide assistance until they receive their permanent residence.
The increased fees will also allow continued program improvements including maintaining or reducing processing times, improving program efficiency, enhancing program integrity and expanding outreach to applicants.
The BC PNP fees are comparable to immigration programs in other provinces. For example, Ontario charges an application fee of $2,000 in the Greater Toronto Area and $1,500 in the rest of the province.
The BC PNP offers a dedicated immigration pathway for international workers and foreign entrepreneurs to apply for permanent residence for themselves and their dependents. It is B.C.’s only direct immigration tool to help our economy grow by attracting skilled and semi-skilled workers in high-demand occupations and international entrepreneurs to establish businesses, including to regions limited by tight labour markets.
The program has experienced significant growth over the last decade. Since 2009, B.C.’s annual PNP allocation from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has more than doubled from 3,000 nominations to 6,750 in 2019.
The program also assists nominees with immigration and employment-related requests while they await permanent residence, and these requests have increased by 50% in recent years. There are currently more than 9,500 nominees in B.C. waiting to become permanent residents.
