British Columbia invited 82 immigration candidates to apply for provincial nomination in new Tech-Pilot draw held on May 18.
The invites were issued to candidates under the Express Entry BC and Skills Immigration categories of The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP).
The invited candidates under the Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories were required to have a minimum provincial score of 80.
The BC PNP Tech Pilot is a popular immigration stream for in-demand tech workers and international students who have a valid job offer of at least 12 months in one of the Tech Pilot’s 29 eligible occupations.
In order to apply through the Tech Pilot, 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.
Applicants are then awarded a score based on a number of factors such as their level of education, work experience, language proficiency and having a qualified job offer from a B.C. Employer.
The BC PNP will then invite candidates who fulfill the minimum score requirements to apply for a provincial nomination through weekly draws conducted by BC PNP.
Those candidates, whose applications get approved, received a nomination confirmation that they can then use to submit their Canadian permanent residence application with the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
82 Tech Candidates, who received invitations in this draw, now have 30 calendar days to submit a complete application for provincial nomination to BCPNP.
The BCPNP has now invited 4,438 immigration candidates to apply for provincial nomination through its various immigration streams so far this year.
