Have you ever noticed the flag of British Columbia?

It has a Royal Union flag which reflects the beautiful and old British Columbia’s heritage, a king Edward Crown to signify royalty and setting sun which indicates its western location. Its flag symbolizes all the best features of the province. It is one of the best Canadian provinces to immigrate, and every year, hundreds and thousands of foreign nationals submit Expression of interest for getting the provincial nomination for PR.

In 2016, the government over there introduced a new scoring system, the Skilled Immigration Registration System (SIRS) to simplify the immigration process and to allow the arrival of skilled immigrants to the province. If you are interested in immigrating to British Columbia, then you need to understand the contributing factors of SIRS.
