British Columbia has an Immigration Tech Pilot

Today we are witness to the fact that the demand for talent is outpacing supply in many spheres and British Columbia, a province of Canada, has taken a few steps so that more professionals and technology graduates come to the province.

The New Technical Pilot forms a part of the Provincial Nominee Program put out by British Columbia, which is a vibrant and dynamic Provincial Nominee Program of Canada.

This pilot project comes with the aim to invite deserving candidates to apply, for a job offer in one of the listed 32 occupations, which are eligible for the provincial nomination. These, lay the foundation to apply for Canadian PR.

These invitations will be issued every week to the professionals who have registered and qualified in the BC Provincial Nominee Program system. Other immigration initiatives and programs will take care of inviting non-tech candidates. Candidates to whom the offer is extended in the Technical Pilot will be subjected to fast processing.  

Applicants need a full-time, and an intermediate job offer from an eligible employer in British Columbia. The categories are different for individuals under this System of registration and have their foundation in their work experience, job and education factors.

After a candidate determines his/her category, he/she can opt for registering online free of cost. They are entitled to get a registration score. A tech draw will be held every week and the PNP will call the top scorers among the candidates who are registered in the technology sector. The invited candidates have 30 days (from the date of invitation) to give the online application which must be complete in all respects. The government application fee is only $700.

The tech applications will be processed based on priority. Upon approval, the applicant is sent a nomination that he/she can be used for applying for PR.

Nominated persons meeting the required conditions are eligible to get a support letter regarding work permit which permits them to obtain/renew their currently valid work permit which allows them to continue to work in the process.
