Published on : November 4, 2020

This year’s first Tech Pilot Draw of British Columbia Province was held this month on 3rd November. 

A total of 76  invitations went out to Express Entry British Columbia and Skilled Immigration Candidates. 

The good news for the applicants is that this year the minimum points requirement decreased by 10 points.

Also, the program has been extended to June 2021 to retain global talent due to the unavailability of local skilled workers.

In the previous year’s draw, the minimum score required was 90.
