How Do I Calculate my SIRS (Skilled Immigration Registration System) Points?

The Skilled immigration registration system (SIRS) is the more special system to calculate the immigration score taking into account several factors to make an immigration candidate eligibility assessment. The different factors are listed below

  • The requirement of BC job offers of Skill level
  • The wages of BC job offer
  • The regional area of employment
  • Work experience
  • Education qualification
  • Language Proficiency

To apply for the British Columbia PNP program candidates must have a full-time employment offer letter from the British Columbia employer willing to support you and invite you for employment. Also if you are holding a degree from British Columbia, you don't need to have an employment offer letter. After this, you can submit your application and you will be allotted with certain points based on the above mention criteria. With this score and you're profiled will be then entered into the Express Entry pool along with the profiles of other candidates.
