The Premier’s Technology Council has been a supporter of the Provincial Nominee Program for many years since our 10th Report (released in 2007). It has been an excellent program for allowing BC tech companies to access international talent to help fill the high demand of the growing sector. It is well-received by industry and participants.
The Provincial Nominee Program was redesigned in 2015 to better meet the high demands of the program and to better meet BC’s economic needs. The system was reformed to better prioritize applicants and also aid in processing time and volume.
