At the beginning of June, we receive great news to support workers in Canada. The province of British Columbia extended Tech Pilot Program until June 2020, accordingly to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Tech Pilot is the province’s immigrant nominee program which provides a fast track to Canadian permanent residence for international tech workers in 29 eligible tech occupations.

For this program, the tech worker must receive the job offer for at least one year in duration and have at least 120 days remaining on it at the time of application. The BC PNP explained that they extended the pilot program in order to provide BC tech employers with the continued ability to recruit and retain international talent.

Therefore, eligible candidates in the Skilled Workers and International Graduates categories of the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)’s Skill Immigration and Express Entry streams can expect invitations to apply in weekly draws.

Moreover, candidates who apply to Express Entry program and receive a provincial nomination from British Columbia, receive an additional 600 points toward their ranking score, making a great difference in the pool and increasing the chances to receive an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
