Which occupations are currently eligible for BC PNP's Tech Pilot program?


When people hear "tech pilot" one may assume a narrower definition of eligible occupations.


However BC PNP's current list of 29 Eligible Occupations for the BC PNP Tech Pilot has some surprises:


If you think that your occupation fits one of the National Occupation Classification (NOC) description of one of the occupations listed above, then you may potentially qualify to apply under BC PNP's tech pilot.

It's important to note that you must meet all program requirements both at the time of registration to seek a nomination, and then at the time of application (if nominated).
