BC PNP Tech Pilot has in-demand job opportunities

Tech workers around the world: this is your chance! You already know that the province of British Columbia (BC) owns a big Tech Orbit in Canada. And now comes the good news about that: to fill labor needs, the province has in-demand job positions to offer in Tech sector. That is part of the new Tech Pilot of the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP). Therefore, is a great opportunity for talented foreign skilled-workers to find a job in BC and immigrate to Canada. And there is a bonus: the Tech Pilot program is a priority in the BC PNP at the moment, so processing time tends to be really fast!

Like other Canadian Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), to apply for the BC PNP the candidates must receive first an indeterminate full-time job offer in one of the eligible occupations. That means only job offers with no limited time to finish are eligible for the Tech Pilot. Therefore, this program doesn’t accept seasonal or temporary work. After having a job offer, the candidate may apply for provincial nomination and, after that, to become a permanent resident in Canada.
