What is British Columbia PNP?


The BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is an economic immigration program administered by the Immigration Programs Branch of the Government of British Columbia.


The program allows the province to select and nominate foreign workers, international students, and entrepreneurs to help meet British Columbia’s labor market needs, support government priorities, and grow the province’s economy. If you are nominated, you and your family can apply to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to become permanent residents of Canada.


The purpose of the BC PNP is to attract foreign workers who are in high demand in the province and wish to become permanent residents of Canada.
