Best BC PNP Tech Pilot Nominee immigration tips are designed to answer your immigration questions and to increase your chances of success in immigrating to British Columbia.

In the last blog, we briefly introduced to you the BC Provincial Nominee Program (“BC PNP”). The BC government has recently removed the Guaranteed Invitation scores which means the Invitation to Apply (“ITA”) scores going forward could be even higher than the previous Guaranteed Invitation scores. At this point, it may not be easy for an applicant to be invited by BC PNP especially for recently-graduated international students who work under a National Occupational Classification Level B (“NOC B”) occupation. However, if you are working as an IT professional, you may be eligible under a separate BC PNP pilot program.  In today’s blog, Sunny Chiu and Helen Han, of our BC Immigration lawyers department, will talk the Tech Pilot program, a program under the BC PNP which provides a great opportunity for IT professionals to immigration to Canada. Our goal is to educate you about the PNP Tech Pilot Nominee Immigration program.

The BC PNP Tech Pilot helps employers to retain their talents in certain in-demand tech occupations by providing a fast-tracked, permanent immigration pathway for these foreign workers and international students. What is even better is that the BC PNP Tech Pilot program has been extended to June 2020.
