    British Columbia targeting in-demand occupations

    The way British Columbia has been targeting only specific occupations since the last few draws. There could be a very particular reason behind this, and it won’t be wrong to assume that BC PNP draws are targeting in-demand occupations. 

    There’s a prevalent issue of labor shortage going on around Canada for quite a long time. This issue boomed after the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    Hence, provinces and territories across Canada have been trying to cope with the high demand for labor in various occupations by inviting foreign workers and granting them PR. 

    A similar tactic could also be seen in the way British Columbia is inviting candidates for particular industries. This is a clear indication that if you have work experience in such industries, and you are eligible to immigrate to Canada, permanent residency may be yours too.
