Update of eligible high demand occupations in the BC PNP Skills Immigration stream
 
We have updated the list of eligible high demand occupations in the BC PNP Skills Immigration stream to align with the latest version of the B.C. Labour Market Outlook: 2018 Edition that reflects B.C.’s high demand occupations list.
 
Individuals whose occupations are included in the B.C. high demand occupations list are awarded an additional 10 points in the BC PNP Skills Immigration Registration System.
 
These changes do not affect active registrations or applications that have already been submitted. To be awarded the additional points, registrants have to withdraw their existing registration and submit a new registration. Those who have already registered whose declared occupations are now removed from the list will not be affected – their scores will remain the same at the time when registration and/or application occurred. 
 
These changes will take effect on November 7, 2018.
 
For more information, please refer to the Skills Immigration and Express Entry BC Program Guide.

BC Provincial Nominee Program extends and enhances the Tech Pilot

The BC PNP Tech Pilot has been extended for another year to provide employers with a degree of stability that will allow them to plan for their future staffing needs.
 
We have made additional changes to the Tech Pilot based on demand from tech sector employers in the pilot’s first year.

Eligible Tech Pilot Occupations

We have updated the list of eligible occupations for the Tech Pilot to focus on the 29 tech occupations that have been demonstrated to be in high demand by the tech sector so that we can maintain the speed of service.

Labour market research conducted by the BC Tech Association and the Vancouver Economic Commission identified 32 in-demand tech occupations, and eligibility for the BC PNP Tech Pilot was originally based on these 32 tech occupations.
 
Based on demand from tech sector employers in the first year, the pilot will continue with 29 of these occupations eligible. Tech occupations in high demand will remain prioritized in order to maintain the speed of processing and a high level of service to tech employers.


Enhancements to Tech Pilot job offer requirements

Many B.C. tech companies in certain sectors such as animation and visual effects operate on a project-based business model, which means job offers are for a specific period of time.
 
Applicants who work within the occupations under the BC PNP Tech Pilot will now be able to apply based on one-year job offers. Previously, applicants to the BC PNP Tech Pilot needed to have a full-time job offer for an indeterminate amount of time in order to qualify.
 
This change will help more tech companies find the skilled workers they need and ensure tech talent stays in B.C.
 
As of June 26, 2018, job offers under the BC PNP Tech Pilot must meet the following criteria:
  • the job offer must be for a single job in one of the 29 occupations eligible under the BC PNP Tech Pilot;
  • the job offer must be at least one year in duration (365 days); and
  • there must be at least 120 calendar days remaining on the job offer at the time of application
Longer duration job offers, including indeterminate (permanent, or with no set end date) job offers, will continue to be eligible.

These changes will take effect June 26, 2018.
 
Tech employers can access the concierge service at any time with their immigration needs and support tech applications through the program.
 
Visit our BC PNP Tech Pilot page for full information about the pilot, including downloadable, high-level information sheets and FAQs, and concierge contact details.
