B.C. invited 76 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence on November 17, 2020.
The applicants were invited through the Express Entry and Skills Immigration streams
Candidates were invited under the Skilled Worker, International Graduate, and Entry-Level and Semi-Skilled subcategories through the BC PNP Tech Pilot. Invited candidates need to have job offers in an eligible tech occupation in order to receive the nomination. The minimum required score for successful candidates was 80 in all categories.
To apply for the Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC categories candidates must first create a profile through the BC PNP’s online portal and register under its Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
Applicants are evaluated and issued a score based on factors such as level of education, work experience, proficiency in English and location of employment.
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.
Such individuals are effectively guaranteed an Invitation To Apply (ITA) in a future federal Express Entry draw.
Every week, B.C. issues invitations under its Tech Pilot.
The BC PNP Tech Pilot is a fast-track immigration pathway for in-demand IT workers and international students. It operates through B.C.’s existing provincial immigration streams.
In order to be considered for immigration to B.C. through this program, candidates need to have a valid job offer in one of 29 eligible occupations.
Eligible occupations for the BC PNP Tech Pilot include computer and information systems managers, civil engineers, web designers and developers, translators as well as audio and video recording technicians, among many others.
In contrast to other BC PNP streams that require an offer of permanent employment, Tech Pilot job offers must have a minimum duration of one year. However, offers of employment that are more than one year in duration will still be eligible under the pilot. It is also required that the job offer be full-time and from an eligible employer in the province.
Candidates who are invited to apply for a provincial nomination have 30 days to submit a complete application. If you wish to know your eligibility for BC PNP, contact us.
