BC PNP Tech draw: 140 immigration invitations issued

So far this year, British Columbia has issued more than 1,100 invitations to apply for provincial nomination.


British Columbia invited 140 tech workers to apply for a provincial nomination on February 15.

The invitations were issued through the BC PNP Tech, which is a stream under the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP).

The BC PNP is an economic immigration pathway used by the province of British Columbia to attract experienced, high-demand foreign workers. The program gives people who choose to live and work in British Columbia a path to permanent residence.

Candidates invited through BC’s Tech draws must meet the requirements of one of British Columbia’s Express Entry BC and Skills immigration categories, which are managed through the Skills and Immigration Registration System (SIRS).

Candidates who received invitations in this draw were from the Skilled Worker and International Graduate subcategories and needed a minimum provincial score of 85.

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