The PNP Tech programme in British Columbia

To recruit and retain international talent, the "BC PNP Tech Pilot" has been extended indefinitely. Employers in the technology sector in British Columbia have been designated BC PNP Tech. It was first released in May of 2017. The BC PNP IT, in particular, is a fast-track immigration pathway for in-demand tech employees and overseas students, with 29 tech vocations available. B.C. is developing local talent and introducing pupils to tech training and education at an early level. BC PNP has helped over 6,000 tech workers for P.R. since its inception.

Such applicants must apply to the IRCC for permanent residency (Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada). Provincial Nominee Programs (BC PNP) are among Canada's most rapid immigration programs.

BC PNP tech draw requirements

Candidates invited through B.C. Tech draws must meet the requirements of one of the Express Entry BC or Skills immigration categories regulated by the Skills and Immigration Registration System in British Columbia (SIRS).

In the BC PNP, a provincial score of 75 was required for the Skills Immigration stream. They are aiming for talented professionals and international graduates who are currently live outside of Canada and want to relocate to the maple country. The interested workers can apply to join the express entry pool using the SIRS (Skills Immigration Registration System). At the time of the BC PNP application, the job must be for a minimum of one year with at least 120 days remaining. This is a full-time job for this tech invitation.
