On March 10, 2022, British Columbia introduced important amendments to the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP) Skills Immigration stream, prioritizing the applications of healthcare workers and early childhood educators. As of March 10, the province replaced the targeted invitations to apply with the registration points awarded for high-demand occupations in the Labour Market Outlook. The new instructions clarify employer requirements and other changes to the Skills Immigration categories. The province will conduct general draws for other skilled and semi-skilled workers who meet program criteria based on various factors that support government priorities.
