The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) conducted another Tech Pilot draw on September 22.

Total 74 immigration candidates received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence in this draw.

Selected candidates who were from the Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories needed a minimum provincial score of 80.

The BC PNP Tech Pilot

The BC PNP Tech Pilot program offers a fast-track pathway to permanent residence for certain foreign tech workers who have a job offer in one of 29 eligible occupations in British Columbia.  

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.

Launched in 2017, the pilot has been extended several times, most recently until June 2021.

BC PNP has held 6 draws through its various PNP categories and streams so far in September and has invited around 1,000 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.

Candidates, who received invites in this draw, now have 30 calendar days to apply for the nomination to BC PNP.
