How to apply?

Managed under the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP), Skills Immigration draws were established to target foreign skilled workers and graduates - that can help support & sustain BC’s labour market needs and economy.

Before you start the process, carefully review the information about the Skills Immigration streams - to find the one that best matches your situation. There are currently five streams.
