General information

The number and frequency of invitations to apply is based on annual nomination allocations from the Canadian federal government (IRCC), and our ability to process applications in a timely way. 

Under the BC PNP Tech Pilot, we issue weekly invitations to qualified registrants with valid job offers in the key technology occupations. The Tech Pilot draws refer to those invitations. If your occupation is not in the list of key technology occupations, you may still be eligible to apply. We will continue to conduct regular draws for qualified individuals across many different occupations, based on the annual allocation and the program’s processing capacity.

View the latest processing times.

  • Skills Immigration — International Graduate
  • Skills Immigration — Entry Level and Semi-Skilled
