The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) conducted new Tech Pilot draw on October 6.
Total 72 immigration candidates working in the technology sector received invitations to apply for provincial nomination in this draw.
Invitations were issued to candidates through the Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories in both the Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skills Immigration streams.
The minimum provincial score required for applicants in both subcategories was 80 points.
British Columbia holds weekly Tech Pilot draws through which candidates with job offers in 29 eligible occupations are invited to apply for a provincial nomination.
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.
