The province of British Columbia issued new Tech Pilot invitations for a provincial nomination for permanent residence to candidates in four Express Entry and Skills Immigration categories on November 28.
This latest round saw 42 invitations issued to candidates registered in the Express Entry B.C. (EEBC) Skilled Worker and International Graduate categories and candidates in the Skills Immigration Skilled Worker and International Graduate categories.
In order to be considered for immigration to B.C. through any of these categories, the first step is to register an online profile with the province's Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS).
Candidates are awarded a score based on factors such as education, work experience and language proficiency as part of the registration process and the highest-scoring candidates are invited to apply in weekly Tech Pilot draws.
All candidates issued an invitation to apply will have 30 calendar days from the date they received their invitation to submit a complete application to the BC PNP and pay the required processing fee.
The following is the points breakdown per category for candidates invited in the November 28 draw:
|Date||Category||Minimum Score Required||Number of ITAs Issued|
November 28, 2018
|EEBC – Skilled Worker||80||42|
