BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)

BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)

 

Overview

British Columbia’s economic growth depends on having enough skilled and qualified people to meet labour market needs. The BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is a way for high-demand foreign workers and experienced entrepreneurs to gain permanent residency in B.C.

 

At present, most immigration projects nominated by BCPNP in British Columbia require an employer offer. Only the master and doctoral graduates can apply without an employer offer after they meet the conditions.
