British Columbia is the westernmost province of Canada with its southern territories touching to the US borders. Besides being a historical provincial area, the state has some of the unparalleled beautiful landscapes all around the country. 

The land offers diversity in culture and festivals due to its exposure to different eras and even to the British. The province is among the most urbanised provinces and therefore we see 80% of the population living in the developed cities. To be true, the majority of the population lives in the Vancouver Metropolitan itself. 

Moving to British Columbia means making a pave to the world of new possibilities. The phase completely satisfies the province as it has better job opportunities, less competition, more unexplored places for adventure lovers, a big city with diverse flourishing industries, and a socially hinged & strong community.

What is British Columbia Immigration Program?

The British Columbia PNP program is an initiative started by the Canada BC province to welcome skilled professionals & experts to British Columbia. The motive is to raise the economy and create better opportunities for the country alongside uplifting the individual lives of the immigrants.

Nominations are based on the eligibility criteria, a true intent to move to British Columbia, and some specific skills to fulfil the requirements of jobs issued by the provincial government. 

The BC PNP program is one of the easiest methods to obtain PR status and later citizenship in Canada.
