Comparatively, the cutoff score witnessed an increase of 4-5 points across all streams in the general draw, in contrast to the preceding similar invitation round on December 12, 2023.

Additionally, 113 ITAs were allocated to individuals possessing experience as early childhood educators’ assistants or instructors (NOC 42202).

Conversely, the new category-based draw for British Columbia saw only 74 applicants with expertise in 25 construction-related occupations being invited.

Furthermore, 75 profiles, showcasing experience in 39 healthcare-related occupations, were invited to apply for permanent residency in British Columbia.
