British Columbia launchs pilot project to fetch Skilled Immigrants


Following a rapid growth in energy sector and lack of labour in the market, British Columbia provincial nominee program is implementing a two year north east pilot project to attract workers with skilled trade experiences like electricians and welders. Apart from just attracting temporary workers, it will try and attract permanent residents to Northeast BC. Mayor of Fort St. John, British Columbia claims that a pilot project to attract international skilled immigrants to Northern British Columbia town is in process. This pilot project also includes all temporary foreign workers employed in any C or D level occupation of the NOC system. Rest of the requirements for British Columbia provincial nominee program remains the same.
