British Columbia to Launch Three New International Graduate PNP Streams in 2025

Dear future neighbour,

Starting January 2025, the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP) will introduce three new Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams for international graduates:

– Bachelor’s stream
– Master’s stream
– Doctorate stream

These streams are designed to provide clearer pathways for international graduates to gain Canadian permanent residence (PR) and enhance their employment opportunities in B.C.

The provincial government has revealed the following details for this program:

– Launch date: January 2025
– Language requirement: Minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 8 for all streams
– Eligibility: Graduates of diploma and certificate programs are excluded from these streams but may qualify for other BCPNP pathways.

Bachelor’s Stream

– Targeted at recent graduates with Bachelor’s degrees from eligible institutions
– Requires a full-time, indeterminate job offer

Master’s Stream
– For recent graduates with Master’s degrees from eligible institutions
– Requires a full-time job offer in a skilled occupation, lasting at least one year

Doctorate Stream
– Designed for graduates and PhD candidates from eligible institutions

See below the general eligibility for BCPNP International Graduate Streams:

Candidates must:
– Have a degree, diploma, or certificate from an eligible Canadian institution within the last three years

– Accept a qualifying full-time job offer in B.C., which must generally be indeterminate unless it is a priority technology occupation

– The job offer must fall under National Occupation Classification (NOC) TEER categories 1, 2, or 3

– Be qualified to work in their chosen occupation in B.C.

– Receive a wage offer consistent with B.C. wage rates

– Demonstrate the ability to support themselves and any dependents

– Meet minimum language requirements (CLB 8 for most streams)

Employers must support the candidate’s application and meet specific criteria.

The BCPNP ranks candidates using a points-based system and requires selected individuals to apply within 30 days.
