British Columbia PNP latest tech draw invites 90 immigrants

British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) latest tech draw issues 90 invitations to immigrants for provincial nomination on April 20. 

BC PNP Tech Pilot Draw issued invitations to applicants in the BC Express Entry and Skills immigration categories.

Invited applicants who fell under the Skilled Worker and International Graduates subcategories were required to achieve a minimum provincial score of 80.

The province has now invited 3,531 immigrant applicants in 2021. Invited candidates have 30 calendar days to apply for the appointment.

Tech Pilot is designed to provide a fast-track immigration pathway for a provincial nomination for International students and in-demand tech workers. To be eligible for the BC PNP tech pilot, a candidate is required to have a valid job offer of a minimum of one year in one of the targeted 29 eligible tech occupations and have applied for provincial nomination through any one of the BC PNP's immigration streams.

For an immigrant to apply for provincial nomination under Skills Immigration (SI) or Express Entry BC (EEBC) streams, they have to create an online profile on the BC PNP portal and register their profile under Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).

All the profiles are awarded points based on the factors such as years of direct work experience, education, a job offer, etc. The highest-ranked profiles are then issued invitations to apply for provincial nomination. British Columbia holds tech draws every week.

British Columbia introduced a tech pilot project in May 2017, after they have studied the labor market and they found the problem in accessing the tech talent by the market. Therefore, tech pilots were created to support the growth in the technology sector by providing an easier and simple immigration pathway for skilled tech immigrants. The pilot program has been extended several times, recently until June 2021.
