British Columbia has a rapidly growing economy. The province is hence in need of a large number of skilled and experienced workers. This requirement is largely met by immigrants who find the best job opportunities in this province. The Skilled worker category of BC PNP helps workers in sectors like management, professional, trade, technical, or any other skilled occupation to become permanent residents.
The BC PNP tech stream offers skilled workers in the tech industry the opportunity to find a pathway to get permanent residency in Canada. They get to enter into in-demand occupations in areas where local talent is not sufficiently available.
In fact, BC PNP isn’t a separate category for immigration. Instead, it’s a group of administrative measures enabling deserving tech workers from overseas to enter Canada through British Columbia.
British Columbia offers even international graduates the opportunity to access Canadian permanent residency. Persons who have completed graduation from a Canadian college or university within the last 3 years may get their hands on the chance to become Canada PR visa holders. In case they want to utilize the Express Entry BC option, these international graduates must have an IRCC Express Entry profile number as well as a job seeker validation code.
Foreign entrepreneurs can use BC PNP’s Entrepreneur Immigration (EI) to establish their business in British Columbia and stay on. The EI stream is meant for international entrepreneurs who want to immigrate to British Columbia to establish their businesses. These businesses support economic growth and innovation in the province.
EI is a “temporary to permanent” pathway for Canada immigration. That means that if you get approval, you will arrive in British Columbia as a temporary resident. Moving on, they can apply to stay in the province permanently after successfully starting a business there.
