British Columbia Prioritizes 25 New Construction Occupations Sending 12 PR Invitations

The British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program commenced the prioritization of  25 new Construction Occupations for Immigration on Thursday,  November 16, 2023. The Province also held its first round of invitations for these occupations same day sending out 12 invitations to apply for permanent residency.

Targeted invitations to apply are being sent to workers in certain occupations who also have a valid B.C. trades qualification. This requirement will ensure that construction workers nominated by B.C. are ready to immediately contribute to the BC employment market.

A valid B.C. trades qualification includes a SkilledTradesBC trades certificate or an apprenticeship recognized with SkilledTradesBC.

This development would address the need for residential housing and infrastructure in British Columbia in the next five years. BC has always held rounds of invitations for early child educators, tech and healthcare occupations, veterinarians and animal health technologists.
