British Columbia

The BC Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) is an economic immigration program that allows the province to select and nominate foreign workers, international students and entrepreneurs to help meet BC's labour market needs, support government priorities and help grow BC's economy.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada handles applications for permanent residence. The federal government also makes final decisions on these applications.

  • Must be committed to work and live in British Columbia on a permanent basis.
  • You can apply for permanent residence for partner and children (if applicable).
  • There are different requirements to apply to the BC Provincial Program, depending on whether you are a worker or an entrepreneur. For more information about the requirements, click here.
