British Columbia invited 58 immigration applicants with a job offer in the technology sector and the candidates will apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) draw held on December 29 selected candidates under the Express Entry and skilled migration stream.

Selected candidates were from the Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories and they needed a minimum provincial score of 80. And there are 29 eligible occupations in Tech Pilot Program.

The BC PNP Tech Pilot is a fast-track immigration pathway for in-demand tech workers and international students. It operates through B.C.’s existing provincial immigration streams.

Features of this pilot project include a concierge service for employers, weekly draws for tech workers, priority processing of applications, and flexibility in the length of job offers.

In order to be considered eligible for this immigration program, candidates need to have a valid job offer of at least 12 months in one of the Tech Pilot’s

To apply for the Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC categories candidates must first create a profile through the BC PNP’s online portal called the Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS). British Columbia introduced SIRS 2016. SIRS is a points-based system that ranks eligible candidates according to a score based on factors such as education, work experience, proficiency in English and the type of job offer they have received.

The highest-scoring candidates in each Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC category that uses SIRS are given an ITA for a provincial nomination through regular draws from their respective candidate pools.

Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories of the Express Entry BC  are linked to the federal and allow the BC PNP to nominate skilled worker candidates with an Express Entry profile. 

Express Entry candidates who receive a nomination from British Columbia will be given an additional 600 points toward their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation To Apply (ITA) in a future federal Express Entry draw.
