Invitations have been sent to skilled worker candidates and international graduates in the Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Immigration Skills categories. The minimum score required for applicants from both categories was 80.
The May 26 draw saw the minimum score remain as low as that of the BCPNP’s May 12 tech-draw. However, the most recent draw saw 41 more ITAs issued than on May 12th.
Under the latest Tech Pilot, B.C. invites technology workers with a valid job offer in one of the 29 tech-related occupations that are in-demand in the province to apply for permanent residence.
EEBC applicants must have profiles under the British Columbia’s Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) and the federal government’s Express entry program.
Express Entry applicants who receive a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points for their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. A provincial nomination awards the most CRS points under Express Entry and obtaining these 600 points essentially guarantees that an immigrant candidate will receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence (ITA).
The purpose of the Tech Pilot is to help meet the needs of the British Columbia technology sector in the labour market.
Tech Pilot candidates must obtain a job offer for a minimum of one year. There must also be at least 120 calendar days in the candidate’s term of office when the candidate submits their profile to British Columbia.
