The most recent draw was held on April 7 under the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program, wherein the province invited BC PNP Tech Pilot candidates to invite skilled professionals from the technology sector. The Tech Pilot program allows overseas IT workers to work in in-demand technology occupations and also apply for a provincial nomination to apply for Canada immigration.
Candidates who have successfully received the invitation have up to 30 days from the date of receipt to submit a complete application via the BC PNP Online registration system. An invitation to apply received from any Canada PNP does not guarantee a nomination.
