The Province of British Columbia held another tech draw on August 25, 2020. Total 72 Provincial nominee applicants with tech skill received invitations to apply for permanent residence by the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) in this invitation round.

Invitations were issued to candidates in the Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories in both the Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skills Immigration streams.

In order to receive invitation in this draw, candidates in both subcategories were required to have minimum provincial score of 80 points.

BC PNP Tech Pilot program offers a fast-track pathway to permanent residence for certain foreign tech workers who have job offers in one of 29 eligible occupations in British Columbia.  The job offer must be for a minimum of one year, and there must be at least 120 days remaining at the time of application.

In order to apply through the Tech Pilot, immigration candidates need to have a job offer in one of 29 eligible occupations in the province. The job offer must be valid for a minimum of one year with at least 120 days remaining at the time of submitting the application.

The eligible candidates need to first create a profile through the BC PNP’s online portal and register under its Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS). They must choose to apply through the Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC immigration categories.

The BC PNP will then invite candidates who fulfill the minimum score requirements to apply for a provincial nomination through regular weekly draws.
