Pausing of New Intakes for Registration of Entrepreneur Base Category

The BC PNP Entrepreneur Immigration has 2 categories for Entrepreneur Immigrants:

On July 19, 2021, the BC PNP announced it was temporarily pausing the intake of new registrations to the Entrepreneur Immigration Base category.

The EI – Base category has existed in its current form since 2015. It enables the province to nominate foreign entrepreneurs for permanent residence who plan to open a new business or purchase an existing one, anywhere in British Columbia.

The BC PNP will review the EI – Base category to ensure it continues to meet its objectives to support government priorities and economic recovery, and prepare prospective applicants for the greatest chance of success. The temporary pause does not apply to the Regional Pilot Program.

The BC PNP plans to post an update early in 2022 to notify people when registrations will likely resume.
