Weekly invitations are sent to Tech Pilot eligible candidates. It has a valid one-year job offer in specified 29 occupations. 

BC PNP Tech-Only Draws 2020

British Columbia, so far this year, has conducted 27 tech-only draws through BC PNP. However, BC PNP also invites foreign workers and international students every two weeks in non-tech occupations.

The province of British Columbia has been regularly holding these draws despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
