British Columbia invited 87 immigrant candidates with a job offer in the province’s technology sector to submit a provincial nomination for permanent residence on June 23. This year, British Columbia invited nearly 4,000 immigrant applicants to apply for provincial nomination.
BC PNP draws invited candidates who have applied for a provincial nomination through BC PNP’s Express Entry BC and Skills Immigration categories. Successful applicants who were in the skilled worker and international graduate subcategories were required to obtain a minimum provincial score of 80 points.
The draw of June 23 saw the minimum score remain in the 80s, as has been the case for Tech Pilot draws since early May.
The BC PNP Tech Pilot is an accelerated immigration route for high-tech workers and international students. The pilot project was launched in 2017 and has been extended several times, most recently until June 2021.
To be considered eligible for this program, applicants must be enrolled in one of British Columbia’s existing provincial immigration streams and have a valid job offer of at least 12 months in one of the 29 eligible Tech Pilot professions.
To apply for the Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC categories, applicants must first create a profile via the BC PNP online portal and register as part of their Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS). Applicants are assessed and given a score based on factors such as education, work experience, English proficiency, and place of work.
Express Entry applicants who receive a nomination from British Columbia will receive an additional 600 points for their score on the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) and will effectively be guaranteed an invitation to apply (ITA) in the future Federal Express Entry draw.
So far in June in British Columbia. organized 6 draws in its different categories and PNP components and invited 729 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination. Invited candidates have 30 calendar days to apply for the candidacy.
