To participate in the Tech Pilot Program the candidates need to register in any one of the B.C.’s existing provincial immigration streams and also have a valid job offer of at least 12 months in any of the Tech Pilot’s occupations.

In the Skills Immigration or Express Entry BC categories, only those applicants who have a profile through the BC PNP’s online portal and are also registered under its Skills Immigration Registration System (SIRS) are considered.  The selection of applicants is based on the scores calculated according to education, work experience, proficiency in language - English or French and location of employment.

The selected appellants in the nomination are also eligible for 600 points in the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score.
