British Columbia (B.C.) invited 90 Tech Pilot immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on April 20.

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (B.C. PNP) Tech Pilot draw invited candidates under the Express Entry B.C. and Skills Immigration categories.

Candidates who received invitations were from the Skilled Worker and International Graduate sub-categories of the Skills Immigration and Express Entry B.C. streams. All invited candidates needed a minimum provincial score of 80, regardless of the category they were from.

B.C. has now issued 3,351 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for a provincial nomination through its PNP so far in 2021.

Invited candidates now have thirty (30) calendar days to apply for the nomination.

The B.C. PNP Tech Pilot is a fast-track Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) for tech workers and international students with in-demand skills. Candidates need to be registered in one of B.C.’s existing provincial immigration streams and have a valid job offer. The job offer must be at least twelve (12) months in one of the Tech Pilot’s 29 eligible occupations.

Interested candidates must create an online profile through the Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS), B.C. PNP’s online portal.

Applicants are then evaluated and issued a score that determines whether they may receive an ITA during an invitation round. The score is based on several human capital factors such as level of education, direct work experience, and having a valid B.C. job offer.
