Provincial Nominee Program / PNP
The BC Provincial Nominee Program is PNP for short. The plan has been implemented since 2001 and covers a wide range of areas. It is a resettlement plan based on the province’s needs for human resources and investment projects. It is suitable for those who intend to settle permanently in BC, providing experienced workers and successful business people with a faster immigration process than the federal government. At present, the BC Provincial Nomination Program is mainly divided into two categories: Skills Immigration and Business Immigration.
