British Columbia Skills Immigration
The Skills immigration category of BC PNP aims at attracting semi-skilled and skilled workers across British Columbia’s high-demand occupations under five sub-categories.
Workers in specific occupations with a job offer from a British Columbia employer can choose Entry level and Semi-skilled sub-category of BC PNP Skills Immigration. The Skilled Worker sub-category targets skilled workers with post-secondary education with relevant work experience.
The sub-category of International Graduates enables international graduates with a job offer from a British Columbia employer. A job offer from a BC employer and a post-graduate or doctoral qualification from a British Columbia Designated Learning Institution are eligible to apply under the International Post-graduate sub-category. The healthcare professionals’ sub-category enables healthcare workers with relevant work experience across designated healthcare occupations.
