Hey AsifR, a pretty decent profile - Work experience looks good, the GMAT is a bit on the lower end though. Again, MBA schools look for a holistic profile so the lack of extra-curriculars can be a bit of an issue. You can justify the same though by highlighting other activities that you might have engaged in. UBC, York, Concordia, McGill are quite competitive programs and look for strong data points in all the applications they receive. I have helped some applicants get through some of the top North-American Schools, and I do believe with the right approach you do stand a fair chance at your target schools- So I am sharing the brainstorming sheet that I used while mentoring them with you.
The sheet is pretty comprehensive, and requires a lot of patience- But if you diligently complete it, I am super confident that it will increase your selection chances by at least 30%-40%. Here's the link to the sheet: https://www.mim-essay.com/brainstorming ... ?gmat-club
Good Luck!

Hi Mim-Essay,

Will my application be considered under Bangladeshi citizen or Canadian Permanent Resident?
Because my country is underrepresented in all the major universities in the world, Will my chance increase?

Very low GMAT, no EC's, not a good outlook. These two links might help you, but I would focus on improving your GMAT.

Hi AsifR,

It will be Bangladesh. Yes, schools look for a diverse class profile so yes an under-respresented nationality might marginally increase chances
