Updates coming to the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP)

March 31, 2024

The Ministry of Municipal Affairs will be updating the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) in January 2025 to create clearer pathways and better outcomes for international workers coming to B.C. A detailed summary of the updates will be available in late 2024, and the criteria will be published in the BC PNP Skills Immigration Program Guide in January 2025.

These updates will lead to better outcomes for nominees, ensuring people identified by the BC PNP to help strengthen B.C.’s economy will be set up for career success. They also ensure that prospective applicants are less susceptible to bad actors in the immigration system.

The Ministry will continue to issue targeted invitations to apply for workers with a job offer in a priority occupation, such as healthcare, construction and early childhood education.
