Canada implements changes to the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program
Effective immediately, the provincial Government of British Columbia is implementing key changes to the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) to prioritize certain occupations and focus sectors which are occupations that continue to be in demand in British Columbia.

PNP programs are designed so that provinces have flexibility to target certain occupations or sectors which are in demand occupations in the province.
