British Columbia Tech Pilot Program

The Tech Pilot Program of British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) allows the province to attract and retain international talents for the growth of its technology sector. British Columbia introduced the Tech Pilot program in 2017 as demand for skilled worker in the province’s tech sector was increasing faster than supply.
Under the program, invitations are issued on a weekly basis to qualified registrants having a job offer in one of the 29 eligible occupations under the British Columbia Tech Pilot program. The job offer must also be at least one year in duration (365 days) and have at least 120 calendar days remaining at the time of application.
While registering for the program, the candidate must also provide the details of their supporting employer. The candidate will be invited to apply for provincial nomination only if he/she and the employer meet the requirements for the program.
