British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) held their latest tech draw on May 18 inviting 82 immigrants to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada permanent residence.
Candidates were invited from BC PNP's Express Entry BC and Skills Immigration streams. Skilled Workers and International graduates subcategories candidates required a minimum provincial score of 80.
Invited candidates will have 30 calendar days to submit their application for provincial nomination. So far this year, BC has issued a total of 4,438 invitations through various BC PNP streams.
Candidates are required to create an online profile through the BC PNP portal if they want to apply for provincial nomination through Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC categories. They must register themselves under the Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
All the applications for provincial nomination are awarded points that help in determining the chances of getting an invitation in the latest BC PNP provincial draw. These scores are based on factors like years of direct work experience, education level, and a BC PNP job offer.
British Columbia PNP held tech pilot draws every week.
The pilot project was introduced in May 2017, to solve the problem of the province's tech sector accessing the skilled workforce in technology. Tech pilot was specifically designed to help the growth of the technology sector in the province by allowing the in-demand skilled immigrants to live in the province. The tech pilot has been extended several times and is opened until the next month.
