Provincial nominee applicants with technology skill were encouraged to make an application for permanent residence by the Province of British Columbia.

Invitations to apply for a provincial nomination were issued to foreign tech workers and global students through the BC PNP on August 25.

B.C. holds weekly Tech Pilot draws through which candidates with job offers in 29 qualified jobs are encouraged to apply for a provincial nomination. Launched in 2017, the purpose of the Tech Pilot is to help B.C.’s technology industry recruit IT workers to help address current labour market needs.

The 72 invitations issued through the Tech Pilot draw August 25 went to candidates in the Professional Worker and International Graduate subcategories in both the Express Entry BC (EEBC) and Skills Immigration streams. The minimum score needed for candidates in both subcategories has been 80, representing no change in score compared using the previous tech draw held on August 11.

Applicants are assessed and issued a score based on factors like level of education, work experience, competence in English and location of job.

If an applicant is accepted, they can subsequently utilize their provincial nomination to apply for permanent residence with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada below the Provincial Nominee Class.

Express Entry candidates who receive a nomination out of British Columbia is going to receive an additional 600 points toward their Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and therefore are effectively guaranteed an Invitation To Employ (ITA) at a future federal Express Entry draw.

So far in August, B.C. has held four draws by its different PNP categories and streams and encouraged 863 candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.

PNP-specific Express Entry draws and PNP draws in B.C. along with other provinces for example Ontario are resulting in more technology immigration candidates being invited to apply for Canadian permanent resident status, that can be due to the Importance of the technology sector into the Canadian economy, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
