Are you considering moving to British Columbia, Canada to live and work?

Through the BC Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and the BC Tech Pilot, the government of British Columbia has made it easier to immigrate to British Columbia (BC). If you are a tech knowledgeable individual with the necessary abilities and experience, you may be able to obtain your PNP through the BC Tech Pilot.

Okay, Lets go!

This is an economic immigration policy designed to help the Canadian economy flourish. The initiative allows the province to propose foreign talent, such as international students and entrepreneurs, who can contribute to the economy and meet labour shortages and market demands. Once nominated, you can apply for permanent residency in Canada to live and work.

What are the most in-demand jobs in British Columbia right now?

The province is currently in desperate need of health care professionals and early childhood educators, which are prioritised occupations, which means that people who apply the correct abilities in these industries will have a better chance of success due to the province’s demand.

The following occupations have been prioritised by the Government of British Columbia:

How Do the Skilled Immigration Invitation Draws Work?

Different aspects may be targeted for a different drawing depending on the style of drawing. As a result, applicants will be sent an Invitation To Apply (ITA) and will be evaluated based on one or more of the following elements, according to information available on the official Government of British Columbia website:

  • Level and field of study of education
  • Where did you get your finished qualification?
  • Language ability
  • Occupation
  • Duration, level of expertise, and work experience
  • Job offer salary and/or skill level
  • Reasons for wishing to live, work, or settle in a particular region/province.
  • Strategic priorities entail ensuring that you can meet the needs of the BC labour market or supporting government experimental programmes and initiatives.

The BC tech pilot permits recruiters to seek talent from overseas in order to bring value to the Canadian tech industry and ensure that it continues to grow rapidly. Because local people are unable to fill the post, this experiment is excellent for qualified workers in tech occupations. Candidates can also seek permanent residence through this trial programme in order to contribute to the Canadian economy.

How Do Draws Work in the BC Tech Pilot?

Candidates for this trial will be chosen through targeted drawings, which means applicants will have priority access to the programme. In addition, a separate crew is allocated to examine tech applications in order to shorten processing times.

This route is intended to assist eligible refugees in entering Canada through economic initiatives while enabling Canadian employers to use it to find suitable, skilled immigrants to fill unfilled positions.

Successful candidates for this programme will gain permanent residency in Canada and contribute their skills and experience to the BC labour market.
