87 Tech Workers Invited In The Latest BC PNP Draw

“Over 10,500 invitations to apply for a provincial nomination in 2021 have been sent out by British Columbia.”

On November 16, British Columbia invited 87 Tech employees to apply for a provincial nomination.

The invitations were sent out through the BC PNP Tech stream of the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP).

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is an economic immigration route utilised by the government of British Columbia to attract experienced, in-demand foreign professionals. The programme provides a path to permanent residence for persons who choose to live and work in British Columbia.

Candidates invited through B.C.’s Tech draws must meet the requirements of one of the Express Entry BC and Skills immigration categories, which are maintained by the Skills and Immigration Registration System in British Columbia (SIRS).

Candidates in this draw were from the Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories, and they needed a provincial CRS score of 75 to be invited.

Candidates who have been invited to apply for the nomination now have 30 days to do so.

British Columbia has issued over 10,500 invitations to file for provincial nomination so far in 2021.

About the BC PNP Tech Program

Following a labour market assessment, the BC PNP Tech was introduced in May 2017 as a pilot programme, with the largest issue confronting B.C.’s technology sector being access to talent. Because of the project’s success, British Columbia decided to make it a permanent programme. Its purpose is to allow firms in the technology sector in British Columbia to continue to attract and choose overseas talent when qualified personnel are not available locally.

The BC PNP Tech, in particular, is a fast-track immigration route for high-demand tech workers and overseas students. To qualify for the stream, candidates must be registered in one of B.C.’s existing provincial immigration streams and have a valid 12-month employment offer in one of 29 eligible occupations.

Job offers under the BC PNP Tech must be for a minimum of one year, with at least 120 days remaining at the time of application to the BC PNP, unlike other BC PNP streams. It must also be full-time and from a province-approved employer.

The province’s tech programme sends invitations to the top-scoring candidates who meet the eligibility requirements on a weekly basis.

Candidates who are invited to apply for a provincial nomination must complete an application in its entirety. Most tech applications will be approved in two to three months after this is completed.

If approved, candidates will obtain a nomination confirmation letter from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), which they can use to apply for permanent residence under the Provincial Nominee Program Class.

PNP candidates automatically receive 600 points for their Comprehensive Ranking System score, giving them a strong possibility of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency through Express Entry.
