The BC PNP supports British Columbia’s labour market and economic development through immigration. Based on the immigrants’ ability to contribute to the economy, BC nominates them to the federal government for permanent residency. Permanent residency allows immigrants to stay and work in Canada and provides a pathway for them to become Canadian citizens.
