From the testing phase to being permanent, the BC Tech Pilot has a promising future in the Canadian immigration pool.

Launched as a beta-testing model in May 2017, the BC tech pilot has now been realized by the Canadian federal government as a promising stream for skilled IT worker intake. The concept for establishing the pilot was to diminish the labor shortage of BC''s technology sector. This entailed the projection of labor market study to the access of talented individuals and scrutinizing these issues in the light of available foreign talent. 

Having proved its purpose BC government proclaimed that they intend to keep this program -- permanent.

This fast-track pilot is focused on inviting skilled tech workers and international (tech) students for a Canadian permanent residence

Aspiring candidates must have an application registered in any one of BC's existing provincial immigration streams. The applicant must also have a valid job offer from a BC employer in any one of the 29 eligible occupations for a duration of12 months.

The tech-pilot gives out invitations on weekly basis to candidates with the highest score, who also meet the eligibility requirements of the province. After receiving the invite, the candidate has 30 days to respond with a complete application (inclusive of all the documents required for submission).

Further, it will take two to three months for you to receive a verdict on the application.

If approved, the candidates will be granted a nomination confirmation which can be further used to apply for a Canada PR.
