The BC PNP Tech Pilot
The BC PNP Tech Pilot allows British Columbia immigration officials to expedite the processing of immigration candidates for in-demand technology occupations.
Invitations are issued to candidates through the weekly draws with work experience in one of 29 eligible occupations in the BC technology sector.
