The BC PNP Strategic Occupations Program assists British Columbian employers meet their skill needs through the nomination of a foreign worker for permanent residence. It is a highly desirable alternative to a temporary work permit.
Skilled workers under this category normally have post-secondary education or training with several years of employment experience in a professional, management, technical, trades or other skilled occupation.
The application consists of a dual application process. The employer and the employee must both meet the requirements of the program.
The BC PNP offers numerous advantages to participants, including that:
- The individual obtains permanent residence, instead of temporary, increasing certainty for both the employer and the employee;
- The individual will receive Canadian permanent resident visas with unlimited travelling, working, and studying ability in and out of Canada;
- Upon becoming a permanent resident, the individual will have access to Canada’s free education and health care systems; and
- The individual will have the opportunity to obtain Canadian citizenship after 3 years.
