BC PNP Tech Pilot draw

In the latest round of invitations held on November 17, 2020, the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program [BC PNP] has issued 76 invitations to candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.

As this was a Tech Pilot draw, invitations issued went to immigration candidates that had a valid job offer under one of the 29 eligible occupations.

In order to be eligible for the Tech Pilot of BC PNP, the job offer must be for a minimum of 365 days, with at least 120 days remaining in the job offer at the time of the candidate’s applying to the BC PNP.

The Tech Pilot of the BC PNP “offers an expedited immigration pathway for people with tech skills applying to be permanent Canadian residents who will contribute to BC’s shared prosperity”.

Since its launch in May 2017, more than 4,200 tech workers have been nominated for permanent residence through the BC PNP’s Tech Pilot.

In view of the success of the Pilot, British Columbia has extended the Tech Pilot until June 2021.
