Most of the provincial nominee programs allow application for the PR under provincial streams only with Job offers, issued by the Canadian employers.

Most of the provincial programs are submitted online and in order to participate the candidate must be eligible to enter the Express Entry pool. Please refer to the Express Entry for general requirements.

Once nominated, the candidate will be granted an additional 600 points.

Below we will mention those programs, which do not require previous Educational or Work Experience in the province, however, they do require the job offer:

3. BC PNP Tech Pilot

The B.C. tech sector is a major driver of economic growth in the province, with tech employment at its highest level ever recorded. The demand for talent in B.C.’s tech sector is increasing faster than the supply.

The priorities for the Ministry of Jobs, Economic Development and Competitiveness include establishing B.C. as a preferred location for new and emerging technologies, increasing the growth of domestic B.C. tech companies, and removing barriers to attracting skilled workers.

Not as the rest of the programs under the BC PNP, this stream allows immigration with reduced eligibility requirements for a permanent full-time job offer to a one-year full-time job offer.
