The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is the Province’s only direct economic immigration tool for bringing in new British Columbians. It supports B.C.’s economic growth by allowing the province to nominate high-demand skilled workers and investment-ready entrepreneurs for permanent residency.
Since the 2001 inception of the program, more than 26,000 workers and entrepreneurs have been attracted to the province through the PNP.
Forces driving changes to the PNP include:
Economic growth and demographics
In 2016, B.C. hits a tipping point – fewer young people will enter the workforce than older people leaving it – B.C. needs workers.
A diverse, strong and growing economy like B.C.’s needs high-demand skilled workers to fill labour market gaps to keep our economy moving forward. And the whole province benefits from investment-ready entrepreneurs who support innovation and help grow family supporting jobs.
Recent changes to the federal government’s immigration programs, including the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and the Immigrant Investor Program have increased the number of applications to the B.C. PNP.
The PNP redesign will update program criteria and put in place a streamlined PNP application process to help B.C. attract the skilled workers and qualified entrepreneurs we need to grow a diverse and strong economy.
