This dynamic session will provide attendees an in-depth opportunity to learn more about the changes that have taken place with Express Entry and the BC PNP, and how these impact immigration pathways for international students.

Express Entry is the gateway to IRCC’s main economic immigration programs for skilled workers, including Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Workers Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program. Recent reforms to Express Entry have made these pathways more accessible to international students. The BC PNP is an economic immigration program designed to help BC meet its labour market and economic development needs.

The content of this session is applicable to PSE.
