    BC PNP Tech Program

    To fulfil the huge demand of the labour market and bring more and more experienced as well-skilled professionals to the province, British Columbia has launched BC PNP Tech pilot program in May 2017. In the initial stage, the program was a pilot project but it was proved one of the successful programs so the authorities have made the program permanent. The program structure has been designed to fill a big gap, which is faced by British Columbia’s technology sector. The program especially targets international talent because employers are unable to find tech workers locally.

    This is one of the fast-track immigration pathway programs of the province and that is specially designed for international students and foreign workers. Candidates need to register for one of the provincial immigration streams and also require a valid job offer letter from British Columbia-based employer for at least 12 months under the listed below occupations.
